The 10 per cent cut, first announced in December 2022 was reversed after a successful emergency campaign by the Campaign for the Arts, a UK-wide arts advocacy group.

In response to the budget cut, the Campaign for the Arts has launched another campaign, aiming to reinstate Creative Scotland’s funding.

The campaign petition states: “This ‘U-turn on a U-turn’ puts treasured venues and companies, thousands of jobs and access to Scottish culture at risk.”
