Bringing Community, Business and the Arts Together
Based in Wester Hailes, Whale Arts is predominantly a community arts organisation established in 1992 as part of a local redevelopment program. In this time the venue has grown to become a central part of the community offering professionally led arts activities and becoming an essential part of the local community.
As it has grown, the centre has been able to provide greater community and business services with the most recent development of a creative business support hub…
The WHALE Pod Facility
This new and vibrant “WHALE Pod” facility offers the means for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses to take their strategies and ideas forward in a supportive collaborative office space with access to PCs, software and meeting rooms as well as a host of training and development opportunities and a network of creative and artistic professionals to work with and learn from.
Focused on supporting and developing the local community and the businesses it houses, the WHALE Pod offers low rent use of the facilities which are further supported by additional small-scale funding opportunities, in-house professional mentoring and support from the facilities partners at Community Enterprise.
The WHALE Arts centre provides a host of additional creative amenities including workshops, recording facilities, a dark room and a performance space, as well as parking conveniences.
Contact WHALE Arts
I adore the way that young people are really making Edinburgh a centre of influence.
It's a real resource for us here in Edinburgh... I think the potential is really quite significant.
In the end, we are all here to help Scotland to grow. To create jobs and to create a more vibrant sustainable economy.
You just need to be singing your song and making a noise in this part of the world so that you attract people to work here.
