On Thursday 28 March the Scottish Government published its International Culture Strategy, available here: Inspiring Connections: Scotland's International Culture Strategy.

Fulfilling a Programme for Government commitment, the strategy considers the importance of international activity to the sector, sets out how the Scottish Government can support its development and outlines the ambition that international engagement should be central to the sector’s long-term future. The strategy was developed with significant input from Scotland’s culture public bodies, national institutions and, vitally, the wider culture and creative sector.

The International Culture Strategy has been informed by responses to a public consultation held in 2023 with the consultation analysis published in December 2023.
