Culture Strategy Response Conversation

The Scottish Government has launched a public consultation on a draft Culture Strategy for Scotland which will run until Wednesday 19 September 2018. The consultation seeks your views on the priorities for supporting culture in Scotland over the next decade and beyond. It builds on extensive engagement with people across Scotland throughout 2017 and sets out a vision, ambitions, aims and actions which will deliver the new National Outcome for culture: We are creative and our vibrant and diverse cultures are expressed and enjoyed widely. SLIC would like to submit a response on behalf of the libraries sector and its members and invite you to a conversation to discuss the draft strategy. Your responses will inform the development of the final strategy.
