We are the Community Wellbeing Collective, a group of people from and connected to Wester Hailes working together to practise collective wellbeing and question how to create spaces that can hold these practises.
Throughout Edinburgh Art Festival we will present Watch this Space – a space for all to develop together and to experience what community wellbeing is and could be. Throughout the festival the space will host activities and gatherings led by our C.W.C. members, alongside weekend anchor events by invited guests expanding upon the context of community wellbeing, discussing its wider politics in relation to: democratising social care, healing through creativity, who wellbeing is for in an unequal world and collectively imagining the future of community.
C.W.C is made up of: Ayo Akínwándé, Lorna Baxter, Rungano Chigovanyika, Raymond Collins, Federica Cologna, Elizabeth Ann Day, Jj Fadaka, Alan Gordan, Jeanne van Heeswijk, Eoghan Howard, Devi A Kousalya, Eunice Main, Ruvimbo Heather Marufu, Fabien Merville, Tiki Muir, Ema-Sayuru Nyx, Seona O’Flaherty, Susi O’Rourke, Sindy Santos, Jogob Sarr, Bobby Sayers, Josie Tothill, Rumilla Uddin, Holly Yeoman.
