As a storyteller Giles is always looking for new media and how to bring the message of the stories to new audiences. With his latest initiative, VENT studio http://ventstudio.co/, he is collaborating with other artists to amplify and unify the stories through art. Giles will be in conversation with the Contemporary SIG on the 21st December.
