Welcome to WHALE Arts Agency
Wester Hailes Arts for Leisure and Education
'One of Scotland's most successful community arts organisations.' Sunday Herald
... a community arts organisation based in Wester Hailes in Edinburgh. Established in 1992 as part of
the community regeneration process, in 2000 we moved in to the purpose built WHALE Arts Centre.
WHALE Arts provides access to supported, professionally led arts activities for enjoyment, skills development and growth of individuals and the community..
Our mission: WHALE Arts will work to achieve this vision by providing opportunity for the
people of South West Edinburgh to take part in arts activity, to widen their appreciation of
the contribution arts can make to personal growth and to the life of the community.
Digital Sentinel - a community news website
If you are interested in seeing this idea come to life, come along to one of our taster sessions.
- Find out more about what a community news website might be like
- Share your thoughts about what should be on it
- Find out how easy to use technology can be used to report your community stories
- Have a go at becoming a ‘citizen journalist’ and telling a community story
We’ll be using smart phones, tablets, digital cameras and other simple technology. We’ll show you how Youtube, Flickr and other sites can help tell your stories. If you’re not confident using these, don’t worry, there will be lots of support available. Everyone is welcome, whatever your interest.1st May at Wester Hailes Health Agency and Wester Hailes Library, 16th May at Gate 55
