Profile Information

Welcome! FierySpirits is for activists and professionals who are building vibrant, resilient rural communities. Tell us a little about why you'd like to join?
Hi I work in community development and have over a decade of experience working in social enterprise across the cultural and community development sector. I'd like to join your network because I share your passion for building, vibrant resilient communities both rural and within cities. To achieve this aim I feel we need to rethink many of the structures values and approaches currently prevalent across the UK and much of the western world. For this rethinking to happen we need to learn from each other and allow others to learn from us.
About Me (areas of expertise/interest I can share)
I'm a father of three wonderful kids, I live in the west of Glasgow with my partner Carol our youngest son Sean and our cat Bramble. I love watching the Mighty Boosch, American Dad and Family Guy. Playing the guitar and reading stuff. I'm on the board of Xchange Scotland Ruchill Youth Project and chairperson of Glasgow Media Access Centre

A great perceptive comment from George Orwell

All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.

The World Game comes to Drumchapel

Thanks to the largesse of Andrew Lyon and the West Integration Network the International Future Forum's World Game comes to Drumchapel Community Centre on the 8th March. I'll let you know how it goes? Meanwhile I would be interested to know what people have planned for this year of great import. The clock is ticking and I for one need to feel part of something significant!

I am keen to organise an event in April to encourage discussion of NEF's publication The Great Transition…

Remember Remember the 5th of December

Standing on the doorstep waitng for the new month of November to arrive I'm filled with some excitement, dread and plenty of determination. The 7th Nov of course sees the G20 in St.Andrews and a screening of the Age of Stupid at the CCA in Glasgow. Then I've offered to dress as a Polar Bear for the WWF mach in Stirling on the 14th. There is an interesting talk on Climate Change at the Scottish Parliament 12th Nov organised by the Scottish Future Forum. I'm planning a small event at Trongate 103… Continue

Hello Mark. I saw some reference to IFF and H3 in your comments on resilience. Can I assume you have been in the company of my friend Andrew Lyon? I am also interested in your British Council link: I sit on their advisory board for education and governance, and have been involved in a parallel exercise they have been running on 'cultural leadership' which I suspect should have been much closer to the experience you are engaged in around 'community leadership'. So.... it would be good to be in touch if you are interested. My email is graham(at)
