Public events in Paisley, Dumfries and Galashiels.
People across the country are being encouraged to get involved in shaping Scotland’s new culture strategy, with three more public events to take place.
Following sessions held in July in Dundee and Inverness, public events are now planned during September and October in Paisley, Dumfries and Galashiels, Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop announced yesterday. These meetings are being hosted in collaboration with partners in each of the areas.
In addition to the public events, a dedicated resource pack has also been made available online for all organisations, networks and groups interested in hosting their own ‘culture conversations’.
Ms Hyslop said:
“This engagement is a crucial part of shaping a culture strategy for Scotland and we want the views and voices of many to be heard and reflected in it.
“The previous events provided many interesting and important perspectives – from the need for greater geographic equality to how to better support artistic activity at a local level.
“I encourage everyone with an interest to contribute to the strategy by going along to the public events, hosting their own culture conversations or sharing their thoughts and ideas about priorities for culture in Scotland online.”
