  1. Well Said!: The Common Good

    Leave a Comment

    The last film from our original Well Said project back in 2015 has been published online.

    The Common Good Fund is unique to Scotland. It contains a wide range of public and moveable assets throughout the country worth millions of pounds. These assets have laws to protect them, to ensure that the fund is used correctly, for the benefit of communities.

    The Common Good Awareness Project is a community group which aims to raise awareness and promote Scotland’s Common Good fund, as well as the concept of Common Good more broadly.

  3. Well Said!: The Caretaker

    Leave a Comment

    We’ve just uploaded another film from last year’s Well Said project on to Vimeo. This short piece sees Govan based actor Andrew McIntosh performing a monologue from Harold Pinter’s play “The Caretaker”.

    Andy’s comical, yet menacing performance as Mick is a fine example of his exceptional acting capabilities and we are pleased to provide a platform for his talents.
