Developing a Culture Strategy for Scotland
During June and December 2017, the Scottish Government hosted a series of nine Scotland-wide public events during the Engagement Phase which attracted nearly four hundred contributors in total (Dundee; Inverness; Paisley; Dumfries; Galashiels; Aberdeen; Skye; Edinburgh; Dunfermline) and more than fifty events were also held by partners and stakeholders.
Many took part in the engagement phase which ran with the central ambition to stimulate debate and generate ideas across the sector and wider society to inform the development of the strategy. Written submissions were also made by organisations and individuals, and more than thirty contributions were received via the online interactive ideas forum.
An engagement report has now been produced which provides an overview of the main themes and ideas that emerged across all the engagement events as well as written submissions and online forums.
The report will inform a draft strategy which will issue for public consultation during 2018.
