Stevenson Hails Arts And Culture Digital R&D Programme

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has hailed the launch of a Scottish Arts and Cultural Digital R&D Programme as a valuable opportunity for Scotland’s arts and cultural sector.

The program, which has been launched jointly by Creative Scotland and the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, aims to help arts and cultural organisations of all sizes from across Scotland develop further using new digital technologies. There is a £500,000 fund in place to support this work.

Highlighting the opportunity, Mr Stevenson said:

This is great news for arts and cultural organisation in the North-east and across all Scotland.

“The rapid development of digital technologies opens up exciting new opportunities for Scotland’s world-renowned arts and culture sector to reach new audiences and develop new business models.

“I would encourage any local arts and cultural organisation to apply for assistance under this scheme before Friday 20th April.

“Eligible organisations must be either predominately publically funded and/or registered charities and seek to work with digital technologies.”
