Click Between Slides Without Triggering Interaction?

Hello! My goal is to make it so the project name can be clicked on to drop down and retract the project image slider. The issue I’m facing is that the user cannot click between slide images without retracting the slide. What steps would I need to follow so that only clicking on the project name will trigger the dropdown / retracting? THANK YOU!
