Question reference: S6W-14705

  • Asked by: Clare Adamson, MSP for Motherwell and Wishaw, Scottish National Party
  • Date lodged: 1 February 2023
  • Current status: Initiated by the Scottish Government. Answered by Angus Robertson on 2 February 2023


To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on work to develop a strategy to support the culture sector’s international connections and ambitions.


The Scottish Government has today launched a survey seeking views from the culture sector on the development of an International Culture Strategy. Scotland’s culture sector has an extensive international presence and a strong reputation. However, this is undoubtedly a challenging time and this strategy must seek to support the resilience and long term development of the sector through enhancing and developing its international links. The survey will be open for
‎ 3 months and in parallel to it we plan to undertake a number of focussed conversations with stakeholders to explore emerging themes in more detail. It will be essential for this work to draw strongly on the knowledge, expertise and lived experience of cultural organisations and practitioners, and I would encourage engagement to the greatest extent possible.
