The first happy edition of the Sentinel is being delivered to homes across Wester Hailes this December, sharing local good news and creative elements from WHALE Arts with the local community.
The paper was put together by WHALE Arts Co-Production Artist in Residence Mo Odling, with content entirely gathered from local people and projects. Printed on WHALE Arts new risograph printer, a huge thanks to our wonderful volunteers to help to collate and fold all 6,000 prints!
The Happy Sentinel marks the launch of Pod Press, a new publishing house in the West of Edinburgh. Pod Press will be publishing artworks, maps, guides, stories, books, leaflets and more – capturing and sharing the wealth of creativity which happens in Wester Hailes.
You can download the Happy Sentinel here or find an embedded version at the bottom of the article.
Keep an eye out for the Christmas Truffle recipe in the Happy Sentinel – here is the author Susan with the celebratory batch for the WHALE community meal! Delicious :)
A huge thanks to everyone who submitted content, from the local hero nominations to the articles. Happiness is an action, we hope receiving the Happy Sentinel shared a little brightness to your day!Happy-Sentinel-rotated-1
