Jack Gamble, director of the UK-wide Campaign for the Arts, said: “Although the Scottish Government has made a welcome commitment to increase annual investment in culture by £100m over the next five years, Creative Scotland’s current budget is in fact 13 per cent smaller in real terms than the last time they confirmed regular funding for organisations in 2018.

“It’s vital that ministers move further and faster to invest in Scotland’s arts and culture, so that everyone can reap the rewards socially and economically in the years ahead.”
