#13 Fighting creative poverty with the Make Bank Project

In this episode MbF's Glenn Garriock talks to Tom Pigeon's Kirsty Thomas about their social project The Make Bank

"It's about addressing some of the issues surrounding 'creative poverty’ and pupils' access to art and design subjects and careers. During my research I became aware that an increasing number of UK pupils from deprived backgrounds are choosing not to study creative subjects in school.
