Decolonisation and post-growth economies

Funding Opportunities

Belfast food Network

Here in Northern Ireland, despite an abundance of producers, distributors and suppliers, we suffer, like the rest of the UK and Ireland,from ever- increasing levels of food poverty, food waste and longer, less efficient supply chains. We seek to combat this state of affairs by promoting a greater profusion and diversity within the food industry, making use of, while not exploiting our resources.

Community Apothecary

A vision of a community herbal healthcare hub formed around medicine gardens, with a circular, mutually-supported flow of resources that are responsive to the diversity of the community and its healthcare needs. Plants grown, foraged, harvested collectively and made into medicine communally with skill-sharing and knowledge-building through practical learning at the heart of the process.

Enough!

Enough! is a collective formed in response to social, economic and ecological crises within a Scottish context. Through framings of degrowth, decolonisation and deep adaption, we actively respond to emerging (and existing) crisis realities and make visible ideas which are explicitly challenging and exploring alternatives to capitalism. 

Gentle/Radical

Gentle/Radical is an artist-run socially engaged project, centering healing and social justice, decolonial practice, and non-extractivist engagement. How power works, how it’s historically been organized, and how we transform this – is the starting point for what we do. Intersectional and cross-disciplinary, we curate, collaborate and build projects via cultural praxis that seek to make the marginal, our mainstream.

Grass Roots Remedies co-op

Grass Roots Remedies co-op works in areas of multiple deprivation in Edinburgh, some of the communities being hardest hit by covid-19. With our community herbal clinic now offering digital consultations only and all free community workshops cancelled during this time we are offering free herbal remedies, distributed alongside free food provision services.

ISOR

ISOR supports people who live ethnically or culturally nomadic lives in terms of security, liberty, expression and free movement. We unite around issues that affect all nomadic cultures. We seek the common ground that can be found through the experiences of cultural diversity. Sustainability is a fundamental concern for us.

Radical Herbalism Gathering & Network

As a collective of medical herbalists, healthcare activists, bodyworkers and designers we have organised Radical Herbalism gatherings for the past eight years. We’re currently offering information and resources through our website, addressing the COVID-19 crisis through the lens of healthcare inequality and race-based and other injustices, with solidarity and support for people and communities experiencing the pandemic and its effects disproportionately.

Shieldfield Art Works

Shieldfield Art Works (or ‘SAW’) is an arts organisation based in Shieldfield, Newcastle upon Tyne. SAW is an artist-led organisation committed to creativity, theological critique and community engagement. Through making art, growing, cooking, discussion and learning, we seek positive change for the welfare of the city, in order to seek out ways of supporting and enabling social transformation.
