Hi @Nadia... looks good. I've done a few edits. hashtag might be better #woodworking rather than #woodmaking. Thanks!
She has described herself as 'A hoarder of bits of thinking and half formed disruptive thoughts with occasional bouts of fundamentalism about things that should be simple.' Gehan lives in Glasgow, Scotland where she co-founded the GalGael Trust, a working community who take on demanding common tasks that demonstrate ways of living with greater humanity in our times. They run a large physical space consisting of a carpentry workshop, metal forge, co-working stations for makers, and timber mill. The workshop creates a space of social and practical solidarity among its workers and participants - many live lives that have been battered by storms such as worklessness, depression or addiction. They work together on demanding projects which require collaborative effort. Some of the products are sold through their social enterprise. Their traditional wooden boats take people out on the river to see the city and the world from a new perspective.
Gehan is curating a track at the OpenVillage Festival in Brussels this October. It is a participant built event dedicated to bringing together existing projects into a demo of a new health and social care system powered by open source, community-driven solutions ("opencare"). We are interested in what our peers already already are doing in different parts of the world, and what we can do together.
