We are a community media and creative training social enterprise based in West Dunbartonshire.
Under normal circumstances we work with local volunteers to produce a free quarterly positive news community magazine and distribute 10,000 copies to 200+ community locations across West Dunbartonshire.
We also run a mix of creative and media training and events for people living in West Dunbartonshire including our quarterly Creative Café days.
All of our face-to-face activities are now on hold however we continue to provide a service to people in our community.
Clydesider Covid Mini Mag.Thanks to funding from Corra Foundation and Foundation Scotland we are now publishing a monthly Clydesider Covid Mini Mag. These are packed with
useful information about local support services, plus positive stories and creative ideas from our community.
They are free to download from our website and with the help of community partners 2000 copies are delivered to people who might not read them online.
Clydesider Information Service
Reliable information is essential at this time and our team is collating useful information resources which we share on our website and social media.In addition two of our volunteers are conducting video interviews with local support services and we’re sharing these on Youtube and social media to reach a wide audience.
Community Response Network
We are also hosting a weekly Community Response Network meeting on Zoom. These started as an informal opportunity for local community organisations to connect and share information about what they are doing to respond to the crisis. They have grown to include funders, representatives from the Council’s Communities team and the Poverty Alliance. We will develop these to meet the changing needs of our community. Any organisation from West Dunbartonshire wishing to join these calls please email and I’ll include you in the Zoom invite list.
Coming Soon… Creative Café from Your Couch.
These will be a mix of online and offline creative workshops and activities. #WatchThisSpace
