Edinburgh Crisis Centre – Charity Auction Appeal

Edinburgh Crisis Centre is based in Leith.  We are a mental health charity supporting Edinburgh residents aged 16 years and over who are in mental health distress. We are the only crisis centre in Scotland that provides 24hr support via phone, email and text as well as offering face to face support.  Additionally, we have accommodation for people at risk of suicide where they can stay for up to a week in a safe environment and receive support from safe 24hrs a day.

Being a charity we rely on fundraising events in order to keep improving the environment of the centre and to make it as safe and relaxed as possible for people visiting the centre. With previous fundraising events we have been able to install a new kitchen and start an art group and writing group which we have recently won an ‘Inspiring Edinburgh’ award for our willing and able volunteers.

We are looking for donations of artwork.  We are looking to hold a charity auction at the end of the year and an item such as this would be gratefully received.

“STRONG IS BETTER THAN ANGRY” Short Film Casting Call

Award-winning Edinburgh based filmmakers are casting for a short film about the state of the country, called STRONG IS BETTER THAN ANGRY. The film is a drama-documentary hybrid which asks ‘What makes us, as women, angry?’ Much of it will take place in a body combat style kick-boxing class. This exciting short film has been commissioned as part of a series called ‘The Uncertain Kingdom’ and will be screened all around the country at the end of the year.

We are looking for those who identify as female to perform as themselves in this film. All age groups, ethnicities, sizes and abilities are welcome and encouraged. We want a truly representative group of women on screen to explore what we feel is a timely question. Familiarity with body combat or kickboxing is welcome but not essential, although a certain level of fitness will be necessary. We want to hear about what makes you personally upset, angry or sad – so strong opinions are encouraged!
