Deadline: Wednesday 19 September 2018

The Scottish Government has created a draft Culture Strategy for Scotland, and is now seeking the public's views on what the priorities should be for supporting culture in Scotland over the next decade and beyond.

It builds on extensive engagement with people across Scotland throughout 2017 and sets out a vision, ambitions, aims and actions that will deliver the new National Outcome for culture, which is 'We are creative and our vibrant and diverse cultures are expressed and enjoyed widely.'
 
You can contribute to the consultation in the following ways:

Complete the questionnaire at their Citizen Space Portal - you can submit your views as an individual or as part of a larger group or organisation.
 
Host an event or meeting to discuss the strategy with your members or networks - If you would like to host an event to discuss the strategy with your networks or members, please email [email protected] for further information about the criteria for use of available funding. You can share your event details and ideas about the strategy on Twitter, mentioning @culturescotgov and using the hashtag #culturescot.
 
The Government wants to reach as many people as possible through this public consultation so that the final strategy reflects as many voices of those with an interest in the future of culture in Scotland as possible.

Culture is about every person in Scotland so please share the details of the consultation with anyone you think may have an interest.
 
When the consultation period ends, all responses received will be reviewed by independent analysts and a report will be published that summarises the results of the consultation based around the consultation questions. All responses received will be published on the Scottish Government website and anonymised where appropriate. Your responses will inform the development of the final strategy.
