PLEASE NOTE: The deadline for these Surveys and Open Call Consultation has been extended until the 11 June.

Creative Scotland is currently gathering sectoral information that will directly influence upcoming structures for the arts and creative industries in Scotland.

These sector reviews are open to public consultation until Friday 8 June 2012. Creative Scotland is encouraging all members of the Scottish visual arts and crafts community to make their voices heard via an online consultation. In the ‘Year of Creative Scotland’, the survey will help the organisation to deliver its commitment to improving investment in the arts and creative industries.

The online consultation takes around fifteen minutes, and is structured around four themes: Education; International; Equalities; and Environment. These themes relate to Creative Scotland’s key objectives: Talent development; Quality artistic production; Public engagement; The Cultural economy; and Places.
