Why creativity matters Pathways Pathways: getting connected in the voluntary arts was commissioned by Voluntary Arts Scotland with the participation of Perth and Kinross Council and the support of Creative Scotland. The research was undertaken by Kirkhill Associates between April and June 2015. In order to inform long-term plans for a national mapping of voluntary arts groups in Scotland and the building of a searchable and signposting directory of voluntary arts groups, Voluntary Arts Scotland wanted to examine how voluntary arts groups are connected to the local cultural infrastructure of one geographic area. We also looked for creative ideas about how the information can be gathered for a nationwide directory and to keep voluntary arts groups engaged in the upkeep of such a directory.
