I was at a meeting on the 21st of November in Leith regarding  A Culture Stategy for Scotland.

I am new to Scotland and I find that the people and the governemnt have a fabulous opportunity to develop a culture for all, howver, as we know there are many issues that need to be addressed.

I have been living in France for the last 20 years where the annual budget for Culture is 1.1%  and in the new 2017-2018 budget it has been allocated over 10 million Euros.



Why the contribution is important

I have enclosed the link to the PDF of the budget from the Minisrty of Culture (in French) for you too look at and hoping it can help in looking how France places Culture in its society, it aims and  how it devides funds.

On page 24 the budget talks about Creation and artists in Resident and how its aims to support artists and who are instrumental to performance arts; an instrumental part of education and access to the performing arts.
