The Wisdom Space
The Wisdom Space is a Community Interest Company (C.I.C.) founded in 2020 by Michelle Hawkins-Collins. A C.I.C is a special type of purpose-driven limited company which exists to benefit the community rather than private shareholders.
The Wisdom Space was set up to help build a stronger, more conscious and compassionate community in Michelle’s hometown of Bradford on Avon during these times of unsettling changes. At such times, we need ways of coming together so that we can better support each other and can feel more connected to our communities. We also need to develop self-understanding, including what is important in our lives, to live with meaning and purpose. This in turn helps us to age well and adapt to the inevitable changes of life.
To meet this aim, The Wisdom Space offers monthly talks, workshops and performances which focus on sharing wisdom across the generations. It also develops and promotes resources which help us to answer life’s big questions and to explore the bigger picture. However, it is not an activist organisation, counselling or self-help group. Rather it is a space which encourages people to make sense of things together and to hold respect for differing points of view.
