Just wondering if anyone can help advise how to display the products short description on the collection/category pages for Luma.
First you need to check if this option is enable in Stores >> Products Attribute Section: Enable Used in Product Listing to Yes for Short Description Attribute.
Then you can add below line of code where you want to display the short description in your theme Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list.phtml file.
<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/output')->productAttribute($_product, $_product->getShortDescription() , 'short_description') ?>
I think it will help you.
If my answer is useful, please Accept as Solution & give Kudos

@john_clark2 Magento by default provided that but only for list mode.
If you want to show short description in grid mode also then override this file in your current theme.
/var/www/html/magentoce/vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/templates/product/list.phtml and change the below code
$showDescription = false;
$showDescription = true;
