Scottish National Party pledge to double arts and culture budget to £100 million.

30 October 2023

At the recent #SNP23 Conference (Scottish National Party), the party pledged to double the arts and culture budget to £100 million.

The First Minister said in his address:

“I can announce today that over the next five years we will more than double our investment in Scotland’s arts and culture.

This means that by the end of the five years, our investment will be £100m higher than it is today.

This is a huge vote of confidence in the future of our culture sector and in the vital work of bodies like Screen Scotland, Creative Scotland and our festivals.

Delegates, if politics is about choices, I choose to ensure that Scotland’s arts and culture are supported to grow at home, and be seen across the world.”
