Creative Scotland Open Sessions come to Langholm

Amazing scenes today in Langholm as the town was announced as one of the three venues in the country to host the next round of the celebrated Creative Scotland Open Sessions. Earlier in the year the first round of Open Sessions was fundamental in rebuilding the partnership between Creative Scotland and the arts sector.....a process that led eventually to the appointment of Janet Archer as the new CEO of the national arts body.

This will be the first time that Janet Archer has met with representatives of the arts in Scotland in such an open way.....she will be touring with Iain Munro and using the opportunity to outline the strategy they are working on for the future of the arts in Scotland beyond 2014.

This is the invite letter we received from Creative Scotland's Kenneth Fowler is brilliant that one of only three venues in the country is in D+G for these events....don't miss the opportunity to have your say in what promises to be a very important process for the arts in Scotland

Dear Commonty
Just to let you know that we will be announcing another round of Open Sessions today and making them available for sign up.

There will be three sessions in Glasgow on Friday 22nd November, in Langholm on Saturday 23rd November and in Inverness on Monday 25th November.

At each session, Janet Archer and Iain Munro will talk through the work in progress on our new strategic plan and on our new funding approach and this will be followed by an opportunity for those attending to discuss, comment and provide thoughts and feedback.
This is an opportunity for those working in the arts, screen and creative industries to come along and contribute to the shape of both the plan and the funding approach ahead of their launch in March 2014.
Details of the new sessions can be found here: and everyone is welcome to sign-up for a session and to come along and contribute.
As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
Best wishes,

Kenneth Fowler
