Creative Scotland's response to Scottish Government's draft budget 2020/21

Published: 07 Feb 2020

Following the Scottish Government's draft budget announcement, we are pleased to say that Creative Scotland’s Grant in Aid budget for 2020/21 remains stable at £62million.

This maintains overall planned funding for Regularly Funded Organisations, Screen Scotland and the Youth Music Initiative, all of which we warmly welcome.

As always, we will work closely with the Scottish Government and other partners to help create the environment for the arts, screen and creative industries in Scotland to thrive.
