Following lockdown, Gorgie Collective, a community arts collective based in Edinburgh, began running creative community workshops for adults online.

Through the workshops, we were able to reach people in our community safely in their own homes, including those who may have been feeling isolated. We also used the opportunity to share the skills and rich cultures of our members with our participants.
