Workshops will help identify priorities to support Scotland's creative life
SCOTLAND’S creative sector and the general public are being invited to attend a series of events across Scotland to consider the value of public funding for arts and creative activity.
Creative Scotland says the events are also designed to help identify the strategic priorities that will best support Scotland’s creative life, and explore new ways to fund arts and creative activity.
The workshops, organised by Creative Scotland, will take place at 15 venues across the country between Wednesday, May 22 and Wednesday, July 10.
The events are being held as part of the organisation’s strategic update and funding review.
They are an opportunity for professional and voluntary creative practitioners, managers of creative organisations and businesses, and members of the local communities to inform the development of Creative Scotland’s overall approach to funding.
The events will be at the following places in the North – follow the links to book your place:
