THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will provide a timely opportunity for delegates to discuss next steps for Scotland’s creative industries as The Scottish Government develops its culture strategy and Creative Scotland progresses with the proposed establishment of a dedicated Screen Unit.
It also follows the launch of the refreshed Production Growth Fund (PGF), with an additional £2 million increase in its budget - to support the aim of drawing film and TV productions to Scotland.
Delegates will examine the challenges facing the development of the creative industries in Scotland, including around infrastructure, skills and funding streams.
Planned sessions will focus on the future of Scotland’s screen industry, with particular reference to issues raised in the Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Relations Committee Inquiry into Scotland’s screen sector, such as skills, training and facilities.
Delegates will also consider how The Scottish Government’s culture strategy might further help to promote Scotland’s brand globally and attract cultural tourism to Scotland.
