The Campaign for the Arts is encouraging supporters across Scotland to call on MSPs to demand the country’s “long-term underinvestment” in culture and the financial pressures on the sector are addressed in the budget.

Director Jack Gamble said: “The future of the arts in Scotland isn’t just a matter for the more than 70,000 people who work in Scotland’s creative industries. Millions of citizens benefit from a thriving cultural sector, and from the ways it enriches our lives, communities, economy and society.

“The arts make life better, and everyone should have opportunities to experience and take part in them.”
