The reversal follows an emergency campaign launched last week, led by Campaign for the Arts, calling on the Scottish government to abandon the proposed cuts, which received over 15,000 signatures through an online petition.

Jack Gamble, Director of the Campaign for the Arts, said this “vital result” is down to all those who spoke out and showed their support for culture in Scotland.

“The Scottish Government has listened, and it has done the right thing. It’s proof that change is possible when we come together to make it happen,” he added.
