Initial response to the Draft Budget 2017/18

Published: 16 Dec 2016

Following the Scottish Government's draft budget announcement yesterday, we are pleased to say that Creative Scotland’s discretionary Grant in Aid budget for 2017/18 is £32,112,000, remaining broadly the same as in 2016/17.

Our Board will meet next week to respond to this budget announcement and agree our high level budget for 2017/18. Further communications will be issued as appropriate after that.

As always, we continue to work closely with the Scottish Government to ensure that the arts, screen and creative industries in Scotland are confident, connected and thriving.
