Federica Cologna

Federica is an art worker committed to feminist socially engaged artistic research and practice. She is now doing a doctorate as a College Research Award holder at The University of Edinburgh. The title of her research project is Art as Collective Action: Towards an Alternative Future for Democracy, which aims to explore and deeply understand the role that contemporary participatory socially engaged art practices play in fostering civic engagement and cohesion, in particular how these art practices mobilise and assemble people and create allyship. Examples of her work include editorial projects, installations, workshops, choreographies that she shared at community centres, art spaces, museums and during festivals and public programmes in Italy and abroad. Federica is a member of the Community Wellbeing Collective (C.W.C.), a group of people from and connected to Wester Hailes working together to practise collective wellbeing and question how to create spaces for this. She is also active as dancer, activities organiser and community facilitator in the
University of Edinburgh Tango Society.
