    This submission is a co-created map of Wester Hailes which draws from methods of psychogeography. The map is touch sensitive. Touching pictures on the map triggers bespoke audio clips recorded by our co-creators. This map was created with local primary school children.

    The project was conducted in collaboration with WHALE ARTS, a community led arts agency and charity. Wester Hailes is an area of Edinburgh situated approximately five miles west of the city centre. The area is a 1960s brutalist housing scheme built on ex-farmland. Wester Hailes is according to the SIMD (2016) one of the most deprived areas in Scotland.
