Jack Gamble, director of the UK-wide Campaign for the Arts group, said: “After the toll of the pandemic and years of real-terms funding cuts, Scotland’s arts sector is at a tipping point. We cannot afford to lose the benefits it brings – and we must not waste its potential to shape a happier, healthier and more prosperous future. The Campaign for the Arts stands four-square behind everyone showing their support for the arts on 15 April. As we saw last month with our successful campaign against more cuts to Creative Scotland, change is possible when we come together.”
