Campaign for the Arts released a statement saying that while “it’s a relief the Scottish Government has restored its £6.6m cut to Creative Scotland and recommitted this funding for next year… next year’s overall culture budget will be 6% smaller than in 2022-23 in real terms. Once the cuts to Creative Scotland have been remedied, there is only £2.6m of new cultural investment… Amid a perfect storm of challenges for artists and organisations, the Scottish Government needs to go much further, much faster.”
