Articulate Cultural Trust is a Glasgow-based creative hub which strives to support access to and participation in the arts for marginalised children, young people and adults.
Articulate works within communities to co-design and deliver creative programmes for children that focus on positive outcomes and lead to industry-standard productions, exhibitions and events.
Using art, Articulate hopes to support personal development across a spectrum of issues: well-being and confidence; access and engagement; achievement and attainment; creative learning, training and skills development; enterprise and employability.
Articulate has built up strong relationships with visual and performing artists and practitioners across all art forms within Scotland’s creative industries – using these connections to improve the aspirations, attainment and creative development of young people of all backgrounds, especially those from disadvantaged areas.
Participants are rewarded with industry-recognised qualifications, including the Arts Award scheme, awarded by Trinity College in London upon completion of a creative project.
Articulate has a constantly evolving programme of activities and projects which aim to reflect the experience and perspective of young, marginalised people in Scotland.
Through the Lens is a photographic collection illustrating a young person’s perspective on their place in East Renfrewshire today. The works were created with East Renfrewshire’s Champions Board, a forum for care experienced young people (CEYP) to express their views and opinions to Corporate Parents.
Start with Art aimed to promote immersive creative learning activities for CEYP across 20 of Glasgow’s residential houses, providing arts and crafts materials, staff training and ongoing support, all supported through creative workshops delivered by well-known artists.
Turn the Page is Articulate’s digital magazine created by CEYP for CEYP, offering young people the opportunity to showcase their written, visual or filmed contributions.
