Selling Platforms for Art, Craft and Design in Scotland: A Report

The Selling Platforms Report for Visual Arts, Craft and Design in Scotland was commissioned by Creative Scotland in 2019 and gives an important insight into the experience of people working in the sector in a variety of roles, from the maker to the seller.

The research was undertaken by Pace Projects. An Advisory Group with representatives from the sector has been established to inform and guide the work (see Section 11 of the report for Advisory Group membership).

The report reflects a pre-pandemic world, but showed growth in the numbers of open studios and commercial galleries selling work, increased sales and customers for the sector - both locally and nationally – and more opportunities for selling internationally and online.

We hope this will give the sector a market base to rebuild from, over the coming years.

This data, combined with a wealth of ideas and suggestions, will act as important pointers to future actions.
