How this project supported Ragdoll Foundation aims

A solid, well-planned youth voice project to make a positive difference to participating young people and their community. Need was well-articulated, and the proposal well worked out and ready to go – but without predetermined outcomes. Working with practising artists added depth and will support participants to develop their own creative voices.
