Culture and Heritage: A Manifesto for Local Government – Scotland
A strong cultural offer makes communities of all sizes more attractive places to live, work and invest. This manifesto explores how local government can play a transformational role in investing in Scotland’s shared culture and heritage for the benefit of all.
The manifesto was collaboratively produced by a range of cultural partners working in Scotland, including the Museums Association.
Scotland’s culture and heritage sectors are loved by the public and have a global reputation – but after two difficult years, it is important that government at all levels supports their recovery.
Local government in particular has an important part to play in the delivery of our cultural offer, both as the custodian of many cultural assets and in supporting the wider sector.
May’s elections will be an opportunity for all political parties to outline their vision for culture and heritage, and we hope that they do so with ambition, imagination and investment.
