Public Faculty No 14
What are you invested in?

From 30 September – 3 October 2021, Jeanne van Heeswijk and Bobby Sayers invited residents of Wester Hailes to Public Faculty No 14: ‘What are you invested in?’, a four-day event in collaboration with WHALE Arts’ Stitch ‘N’ Time group, at Westside Plaza Civic Square in Wester Hailes. The artists held informal conversations with both invited community members and passers-by about forms of investment, both financial and non-financial, personal and city-wide. Together weaving and visualising conversations into a series of wool blankets, sharing ideas about development, sense of community, active citizenship and other ingredients that make up the social fabric of Wester Hailes.

The project is organised in partnership with Edinburgh Art Festival and WHALE Arts; and supported by PLACE Programme, a partnership between Edinburgh Festivals, Scottish Government, City of Edinburgh Council and Creative Scotland.
