Create Community Wealth is a project that aims to develop community enterprise projects across Wester Hailes and Muirhouse.
The project has two clear aims:
1. To support local people to create and produce a range of products/services.
2. To explore and set up platforms where people can sell their products/services.
Our project will employ a small team of artists and creative people to work within these communities, supporting local people to develop their ideas, sell and showcase their products and services locally. Based on our knowledge and experience working in Wester Hailes and Muirhouse, we envisage that these products and services will include locally created crafts, food and drink products, wellbeing services and creative, performance-based work.
Create Community Wealth will also create a framework for selling and showcasing the work created, which could include regular street markets but may develop into something quite different as the project progresses.
