Creative Scotland response to the publication of A Culture Strategy for Scotland

“Creative Scotland welcomes the publication today of A Culture Strategy for Scotland which marks a significant step forward for cultural policy and support in the country.

"We are particularly pleased to see recognition of the power of culture to change people’s lives, the need to nurture artistic and creative talent, and the opportunity to further develop the conditions for all of Scotland’s culture to thrive.

"We will work hard with the Scottish Government and partners to play our part in delivering against the ambitions of the strategy.”
