Culture Counts - Our Submission to CTEER's Creative Scotland funding Inquiry.
The Scottish Parliament’s Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Relations Committee issued a call for evidence (06 March 2018) on Creative Scotland's Regular Funding (RFO) process for the period 2018-21.
Culture Counts submitted a written document to the inquiry. An excerpt from the submission: "Culture Counts asked its members through a series of conversations and written evidence to gain feedback on the RFO process. We have some suggestions, some points to note and some questions that still need answers. We hope the committee find these insights useful. (...) Culture Counts members would like to take the opportunity to thank the staff at Creative Scotland who we understand do a difficult job under strained budgets." Our submission can be read here.

It might be as simple as sharing a link, or something juicier like submitting evidence to a parliamentary committee. Whether big or small it’s all about informing policymakers of the positive impact of the cultural sector. Sign up here.
