Report from electric Edge Fund Scotland launch
New members signed-up, new projects formed and a belter of a programme took place as Edge Fund launched in Scotland a few weeks ago.
Hosted by The African Carribean Centre, those in attendance heard from long term anti-poverty campaigner Cathy McCormack, comedian and former MSP Rosie Kane, the people behind the new documantary from Dartmouth Films ‘The Spirit Level’, Glasgow based professional filmakers, artists and activists ‘The Camcorder Guerillas’, Galgael, Goldschwanz from the Glasgow Sex Workers Open University, prolific activist and organiser Ann Lynch, Hermine Makangu from Let Freedom Ring and finally AnneSwartz and Jessie Harvey from Scottish Kinship Care Alliance.
The party then continued into the night with music provided by The Woven Tents (Kids in the park) Band and One Love Promotions (Reggae and Soca).
Katharine Round, from ‘The Spirit Level’ commented on the night:
“Thank you for inviting me to be part of the Edge Fund launch night – it’s a fantastic initiative and brilliant to be there with so many inspiring individuals all working for positive change in their communities. The atmosphere was electric and a sign for big things in the future!”
