Have your say

Artists from across the Capital have been invited to a summit to discuss recent criticism surrounding Creative Scotland – their main funding body.

The publicly-funded arts investor has been condemned for lacking transparency but a meeting is being held at its Edinburgh HQ to debate concerns.

Artists from all disciplines including theatre, music, storytelling, visual arts and film are invited to attend, and anyone can put forward a topic for discussion. The discussions will also be written up as reports and posted online so that conversation can continue.

It is hoped that other open meetings will be set up, creating a pool of artist-generated information across Scotland.

The meeting will be held on October 26 between 10am-7pm on the first floor of Creative Scotland’s offices at Waverley Gate. It is free to attend and interested parties should visit http://artistsopenspace.eventbrite.co.uk/ts’%20Open%20Space
