A participatory event at the Articulate Studio in Glasgow on Sat 25 – Sun 26 November 2023 inspired by the principles of Article 31 of the UNCRC.
Articulate are on a mission to transform the lives of care experienced children by harnessing the power of art, creativity and culture. According to UNCRC Article 31, every child has the right to participate in cultural and artistic activities and we know that these can be a source of healing, empowerment and personal growth.
Their goal is to drive a paradigm shift in care planning for care experienced children by embedding access to the arts at its core. They are dedicated to creating a brighter, more inclusive future with these children, one where their voices are heard, their stories are celebrated and their creative potential is realised.
At this year’s cultural assembly, we will take more valuable steps towards realising Article 31 for care experienced young people with your help.
