Creative Scotland

Creative Scotland came into being in July 2010, created as a Non Departmental Public Body to replace and develop the functions of the former Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Screen. It is widely recognised as a model of public sector reform and is housed in a dynamic new resource base for the cultural sector in Scotland (Waverley Gate in Edinburgh) with offices in Glasgow.

The organisation has created a new Corporate Plan, 'Investing in Scotland's Creative Future', which is a 10 year vision and a three year strategic plan. The plan has attracted widespread support for its clarity, its tone and its purpose to contribute to the cultural, economic, social and environmental well-being of Scotland. Creative Scotland works for the benefit of Scotland and its people, with artists and creative practitioners at the heart of the thinking. The organisations aims are to: Invest in Artists; Invest in Quality Artistic Production; Invest in Public Engagement; Invest in the Cultural Economy and Invest in Places. It has relationships with a diverse and wide range of partners across the cultural, artistic and policy spectrum to deliver its objectives, projects and investment programmes. Investments are made in over 2000 artists and cultural organisations each year, alongside pioneering work in developing the sustainability of the cultural sector.

As Scotland expresses its distinctive personality on the international stage, Creative Scotland is delighted to lend support to this journal, through which we hope to share many of our Scottish success stories in the field. If you would like to find out more about Creative Scotland you can go to:
