Campaign for the Arts have launched a public petition today calling on the Scottish Government to abandon major cuts to Creative Scotland, and to work with Scotland’s cultural sector to find a sustainable future, ahead of the final vote on the Scottish Budget at Holyrood on Tuesday, 21 February.
The petition contains 3 key asks:
- Reverse the cut to Creative Scotland in the 2023/4 Scottish Budget
- Support Scotland’s artists and cultural organisations now and in the months ahead, to weather the ‘perfect storm’ of economic pressures.
- Work with the cultural sector to build a sustainable future, restoring and growing investment so that the arts can flourish across Scotland.
