ARTiculate turns Ten!
ARTiculate celebrates its 10th birthday this year. Originally formed in summer 2010 by five like-minded artists who worked together across a range of festivals, in order to jointly generate and run exciting new community arts projects, the collective has since gone from strength to strength.
