This is us, the people behind the scenes working hard to make We-Guild a reality.

Marie has been working in theatre and in the outdoors arts for the last 8 years, more specifically lately for Greenwich & Docklands International Festival. She holds a MA in Public & Arts Administration from both a Canadian university (Sherbrooke) and a French one (Marseille).

She is eager to make the world a fairer and kinder place, where community living and solidarity are in the heart of society.

“The journey is long, but We-Guild is definitely a big step towards it!”

As some other We-Guild co-founders, she is an active member of Sanford Housing Co-op, dealing with some aspects of the financial challenges and supporting members in need with their rent payments.

David is an artist and hacker with a keen interest in open-source and tech-transparency.

When not fiddling with electronics and other audio-visual projects, he continues to explore web technologies and the de-centralisation possibilities of these.

David graduated in 2019 with a Masters degree in Computational Arts from Goldsmiths University, having previously studied Fine Art at Cardiff Metropolitan University in Wales.

He continues to be an active member of Sanford Housing Co-operative in London and is a strong believer in co-ops as a robust and fair solution to work and living.

I teach and study bellydance and body awareness and have a background in biology and music. I spend my days dancing around students, developing and implementing marketing strategies, improving people’s postures, editing videos, watching insects and plants closely, creating content, discovering new tunes to choreograph to and positioning my website in google.

I have collaborated with renowned organizations working with refugees, domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors. As such, I know about the importance of a social and mutual support network and this is why I believe in the power of We-Guild.

I’m also the soul and force behind Dancepandemic, a place to spread the joy of bellydance.

My name is Zahida Palma and I hate writing about myself in third person.

Guillermo is a self-employed yoga and handbalance teacher passionate about co-operatives and systems theory.

He holds a First Class Honours BA from UCL SSEES and has been a board member of CDS Co-operatives. He’s been the treasurer at Sanford Housing Co-operative between 2016-2019, with his main drive there being making financial information as transparent and intelligible (and fun) as possible.

He’s been Deputy Treasurer of CASH and now is very busy trying to make We-Guild a reality.

We believe in a world where everyone can feel supported and trusted, where asking for help and helping others feels easy and natural and where transparency and accountability are the norm.

We believe in a world of human connection, union and networks.

We believe in a world of co-operation and equality, where the collective benefits from the individual, and the individual benefits from the collective.

We want to change the taboo culture around money. There may be difficult conversations to be had, but all of them are worth a try. Communication gives us the chance to improve, to evolve and to better support each other.
