Creative Learning Review

Creative Learning is fundamental to ensuring that future generations are equipped to build on today’s successes as well as innovate on their own terms. We are committed to increasing the quantity and quality of opportunities for everyone to extend their understanding of themselves through engagement with the arts, screen and creative industries. We believe that this has huge benefits for individuals and society in terms of skills development, employability, as well as our happiness and well-being.

The benefits of engagement with and learning in and through the arts are far reaching. Cultural engagement not only enhances peoples artistic and creative development, it also fosters a whole range of life skills, building communications skills, confidence, self-esteem, critical thinking and problem-solving whilst also creating career pathways.

With this in mind, Creative Scotland undertook a review of our creative learning remit during 2016/17. This review intended to support Creative Scotland and the wider sector to develop a shared understanding of creative learning so that it can be effectively embedded across all of our work and across the work of the organisations we fund. The review will inform Creative Scotland’s future priorities for work in this area over the next five years.
