Collider organised with the Articulate Cultural Trust and Napier University. Part of the Arts, Creativity and Employability (ACE) project which aimed to design and improve services to tackle inequality by supporting disadvantaged young people to use their creativity and perhaps think about a future in the creative industries.  For more information on the work that the project’s Young Researchers did as part of ACE visit https://articulatehub.shorthandstories.com/
