This project, under the umbrella of WHALE, was delivered literally out on the streets ‘under a lamp post’… whatever the weather throughout the year. Young people 8 – 18 years from three estates in Wester Hailes, West Edinburgh, were actively engaged in a range of innovative arts workshops – from ‘Neon Photography’ to ‘Street Dance’. – aimed at developing confidence, engagement with services and reduce anti social behaviour. I developed the project as its Coordinator, and team leader as well as designed and led visual arts workshops (2008 – 2010).
