ABOUT US

Once a simple residential area, the stretch of 100 East King Street has since become an energetic haven of innovation and talent in York City thanks to the efforts of The Parliament Arts Organization.

The Parliament was established to showcase the craftsmanship and potential of local artists who have difficulties finding opportunities to do so elsewhere. With support from friends, family, and community, the former residents of a townhouse on East King Street converted their home into a shared space to form The Parliament, a non-profit arts collective.

Within a year, droves of patrons began to frequent the space, bringing with them excitement and new life to a once struggling part of the city. The Parliament quickly became York’s advocate for talented and overlooked creative professionals.

The Parliament’s success provided an avenue for other storefronts and businesses to open in the neighborhood, from studios to galleries, boutiques, restaurants, and 15+ hand-painted murals on the surrounding buildings.
