The Scottish Government writes:
The Scottish Government has been working to develop a draft culture strategy over the past 18 months. It is based on feedback that was obtained from a wide range of audiences (including those working in cultural, arts and heritage and creative sectors, other stakeholders, and the general public) through a series of ‘culture conversations’ in 2017 and 2018. Through these events, the Scottish Government sought to understand, in relation to culture, what is important to the people of Scotland, what is working well, what changes are needed, and what kind of future they would like to see.
The draft strategy sets out a vision for culture, and a set of three ambitions, along with aims and actions in each case. The draft strategy document also provides some background, contextual information about culture in Scotland…
The consultation on the draft strategy opened on 27 June and closed on 19 September 2018. The consultation paper is available on the Scottish Government’s website at: https://beta.gov.scot/publications/culture-strategy-scotland-draft-consultation/
The comment rate was often very high, particularly in the earlier questions where around 4 in 5 respondents tended to comment. Comments were sometimes very detailed and extensive.
