What a terrific week we had in axis this week. Highlight was definitely the What's a Creative Space seminar we hosted in the theatre. 200 young men (16 - 20 yea...rs) from various Job Centres, secondary schools and youthreach centres descended on axis the other morning.

It's all about exploring young men, creativity and mental health - Encouraging young men to get creative about their well-being.
