Discover how design has powered one of Scotland’s most trailblazing cultural resources

Dr Adele Patrick has been developing innovative, participatory cultural projects rooted in equalities for over 25 years. A co-founder of Glasgow Women’s Library, Adele has had a leadership role in forging this influential, change making organisation.
