Creative Scotland is the national organisation that funds and supports the development of Scotland’s arts, screen and creative industries. We are here to ensure that these sectors continue to thrive and achieve their full potential in Scotland and beyond. We act as a funder, advocate and development agency through working in partnership with others to provide strategic leadership for the arts, screen and creative industries.
We support individuals, organisations and companies to innovate and grow, encouraging collaborative working across the sectors that we serve.
We support artists, filmmakers, creative people and organisations across Scotland through funding, development and advocacy. We work in partnership to create a sustaining environment
where arts and creativity can flourish for everyone.
We want Scotland to be a country where everyone can be creative and where artists, filmmakers, individuals and organisations feel valued, empowered and free to develop great things. A country where art and creativity play a part in the life of everyone who lives, works or visits here, no matter where they come from or where they stay; where the arts, screen and creative industries are central to Government on a local and national level, as well as by broader society; and a country whose creative cultural excellence is recognised at home and abroad.
We have 4 objectives. These are to:
- Support excellence in artistic and creative practice: enabling excellent work to be developed that is recognised and experienced at home and abroad.
- Improve access to, and participation in, arts and creative activity: across all parts of Scotland, particularly among equality groups and people from less advantaged backgrounds.
- Develop and sustain a thriving environment for the arts, screen and creative industries: through our funding programmes, development activity and advocacy.
- Deliver our services efficiently and effectively: ensuring a positive experience of Creative Scotland for those we are here to support and our partners, and effectively managing the public funds for which we are responsible.
Our Annual Plan shows how we are delivering these objectives in 2013-14.
