Ecology of Care

Ecology of Care is an ongoing series about community care, harm reduction and mental health. Created by a trio of rave nerds, they first started working together to help build Mutual Respect, Unsound’s safer spaces initiative. EoC is rooted at the core of their own practices, prioritising representation, accessibility, community-building and collective care. They also shared feelings of separation from their chosen family and dance floors, and a strong disconnect with the majority of the music industry; EoC grew out of these personal experiences and conversations during the pandemic. Their aim is to collaborate with local folks to inspire meaningful conversations centered on mutual aid, transformative justice and mental health; to foster positive change and to create alternative structures for people and communities who are too often at the fringes of society.
