The Roots: We Love COLLECTIVE CULTURE!
We started out as a community-resource within the Goodness Brewery, somewhere everyone can come together to enjoy music, art, and learning. The Goodness Brew Co. been was proud to host several workshops and outreach activities in collaboration with us a year ago. We want to continue exhibiting local artists, and provide Not-for-profit creative activities, to support the well-being of our local cultures and communities. As one of the founders at the Goodness Brewery, Zack says- “No business should exist solely for profit”.
Despite troubles arising from the unprecedented events of 2020, ‘WeLove’ aims to shed light on emerging community art and creative practices. By combining audio, video, community workshops, technology and broadcast- we are excited to present a series of engaging new collaborative interviews. On tours through community development projects, we question how the impact of societies continuous paradigm shifts, are affecting local grass roots organisations. We dream of finding our own solutions- From the grass-roots level, up!
If you would like take part in any way, touch in via the ‘Contact’ page. We engage in fantastic family friendly celebrations which embrace local multiculture, no matter where or what happens. Let’s love!
Super times, Sustainable laughter, Satisfied people, for the people, by the people, with the people- we love ❤

Hannah is an Applied Theatre practitioner born and raised in London.
