Outcomes of the Review of Flexibly-Funded Organsiations (17/05/2012)
Creative Scotland Investment Portfolio: Outcomes of the Review of Flexibly-Funded Organsiations.
We continue to be focused on delivery of the ambitious outcomes expressed in our Corporate Plan, including positioning Scotland as one of the world’s most creative nations, celebrating and promoting our arts, culture and creativity and taking creativity into every home through increased public engagement.
To achieve these ambitions, we need to think nationally and internationally, taking an overview of the Scottish cultural sector as a whole, enabling us to invest in and support arts and culture activity that best delivers for the people of Scotland – everyone who lives here, who works here and who visits.
Reviewing our investment models; conducting in-depth reviews of each cultural sector; understanding the scope and influence of the cultural economy; and understanding the role of geography and place; are all ongoing areas of focus for Creative Scotland we aim to ensure that Scotland is a place where creativity thrives and a place that thrives on creativity.
As part of this journey, over the past few months we have been reviewing the current model of investment in what we call flexibly funded organisations and networks and agencies - organisations that deliver high quality programmes of artistic work or act as capacity builders, within a two-year funding horizon.
From April 2013, these organisations will move to become either a Foundation Organisation, to an annual investment or to project-based investment agreement, which reflects both the long term strategic aims for Creative Scotland and the cultural sector as a whole as well as the changing nature of the way creative Scotland receives its income.
In addition, there is resourcing to support organisations to meet commitments or plans that they already have agreed – in excess of £2million. No organisation will be asked to pull back from commitments that have already been agreed.
Creative Scotland’s portfolio of clients will comprise of 44 foundation organisations and 22 annual service level agreements, with a further 49 companies whose proposals will be supported through competitive applications to a range of investment programmes, across quality arts production, touring and festivals, public engagement and international working, totaling over £11 million. Later in the year, Creative Scotland will also publicise its £3.5 million programme for strategic commissioning, which will also offer new opportunities to a range of organisations.
In addition, Creative Scotland will continue to develop new country-wide initiatives in youth arts, national events – such as the Year of Creative Scotland and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, promoting and presenting work internationally, increasing participation, as well as developing the value and capacity of the creative economy in Scotland.
Increasing levels of National Lottery income will support the majority of projects and programmes of work; these will range from single one-off projects, to programmes of work over 1-2 years. Creative Scotland will work collaboratively with organisations as they devise their proprosals.
More than 70 formerly flexibly-funded organisations and a group of networks and agencies, were invited to present their artistic plans alongside their contribution to Creative Scotland’s objectives of investing in Scotland’s creative future across: Talent; Quality production; Public Engagement; Cultural Economy; and Place.
This review confirmed that many organisations are already committed to plans that see Scotland’s creative sector sharing services or working collaboratively and flexibly to respond to opportunties and challenges arising from:
- Capitalising on worldwide rights to intellectual property
- Responsive to opportunities to promote Scotland’s culture internationally
- Preparing for the next generation of Scotland’s cultural leadership
- Developing new approaches to income-generation
Creative Scotland is currently conducting reviews of the music, visual arts and crafts, theatre and dance sectors to identify gaps and needs for investment in our national creative future. The outcomes of these reviews will define and shape the commissioning of services that will see Scotland’s creative strengths recognized at home and internationally.
