Fiona Hyslop - The Scottish Govt Approach to the Arts

Last Wednesday Cabinet Sceretary for Culture and External Affairs Fiona Hyslop MSP gave a barnstorming speech at the Annual Lecture to the Friends of the Talbot Rice Gallery - in which she laid out the Scottish Govt's position that:

'This is a country that is proud and confident, rooted in culture and heritage; a country where everyone should have the opportunity to participate and benefit; where everybody cares about, shares and champions our culture and our heritage – where everyone has a responsibility and can make a contribution. A country where we not only cherish our diverse heritage and traditions, but also continually seek to create opportunities to share and celebrate'
