Culture Counts works on behalf of a group of core members to place culture at the heart of policy making. The organisation and its members are committed to working openly and collaboratively. Collectively we increase the profile of culture; aligning, aggregating and amplifying the sector across policy areas.

Culture Counts is unincorporated. Our members agree policy and communications which are overseen by a Steering Group. The Federation of Scottish Theatre provides secretariat functions for Culture Counts.

 

 3 Actions Newsletter

Our monthly newsletter is for supporters of Culture Counts. We share 3 things you can do each month to promote the value of the cultural sector.
