Our Work

In Wester Hailes

Wester Hailes is home to Starcatchers’ first venue, the Baby Studio, located at Westside Plaza shopping centre in the heart of the community. Our work in Wester Hailes includes delivery of its flagship community engagement project, Expecting Something, at WHALE Arts Agency, as well as delivery of Creative Skills training and our Artist Development opportunities.

Starcatchers has worked in Wester Hailes for over 12 years, building partnerships with organisations in the community and with local health services and community groups. In 2021 we made the decision to deepen our community engagement in Wester Hailes and through support from Outer Spaces, opened the Baby Studio in a dis-used shopping outlet in the local centre. Here we run Starcatchers Saturdays sessions for local families, creative play experiences for local early years settings, as well as opening the space for artists we support to develop their work and practice.
