WHALE Arts is ...
... 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 vision: Arts will inspire change for our community and its people.

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.
