Funding

The Culture budget contributes towards enhancing the quality of life for Scotland’s communities through maximising participation in high-quality cultural events and opportunities, supporting a wide range of Government commitments relating to culture. It is widely accepted that participating in creative activities such as making, or engaging with, music or art can lead to a broad range of positive personal and social outcomes.
