Watch this Space
Community Wellbeing Collective (C.W.C.), a group of residents from Wester Hailes and local surrounding areas, 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 by C.W.C. members, with gatherings and workshops led by invited guests, expanding the context of community wellbeing and discussing its wider politics in relation to democratising social care, the question of who wellbeing is for, inequalities, and collectively imagining the future of community.
