Future of Creative Scotland

The future of Creative Scotland remained in question again this fortnight, following Alex Salmond’s sacking of three of his ministers, including culture minister, Linda Fabiani. It was also announced that the SNP administration has binned its manifesto pledge to transfer £300m of funding from Scottish Enterprise to Creative Scotland, its proposed new arts agency, and instead will develop a body which has ‘an advisory, advocacy and brokering role’. Mike Russell has taken over Fabiani’s role with rather a hefty remit, which includes Europe, external affairs, constitutional affairs, Gaelic, architecture, built heritage, Historic Scotland and lottery funding, and ‘major events strategy’.
