Arts and communities

In Scotland

Working to bring the arts closer to everyone in Scotland, whoever and wherever they are

The arts are for everyone.  We use our funding, development expertise and networks to make sure that communities are not disadvantaged by geographic, physical or social barriers.  We work closely with many partners – artists, arts organisations, local authorities and other agencies – so that people can enjoy the arts wherever they live and whatever their circumstances.

In Scotland 

The arts play an important role in strengthening communities and research shows that 86% of people in Scotland agree that arts and cultural activities help to bring people together.  We work in partnership with local authorities, local enterprise companies, area tourist boards, health boards and other agencies to address this imbalance.

partners: Scotland's Artist Residency Programme

partners is a National Lottery-funded initiative giving communities with little experience of the arts new opportunities to engage with professional artists.

The artist will be based in, and work in collaboration with, the local community.  As part of the residency, the artist will also have time to develop their own work.
