Abertay study aims to unlock creative potential of young people in care

02 Oct 2018

A unique study at Abertay University is looking to understand why people who have been in the care system are less likely end up in careers in the creative industry.

The collaborative project with the Articulate Culture Trust is aiming to uncover the problems Care Experienced Young People (CEYP) face when it comes to getting involved in creative and cultural activity.

Over the next three months, a series of interviews will be carried out with young people, the organisations that support them and groups that support creativity.

It’s hoped the findings can be used to develop ideas to remove barriers to access, and also improve participation, training and employment for young people who’re part of the care system.
