Culture and Creative Arts

Leading creative responses to the world we live in.

Innovative and interdisciplinary

Our work in creative practice is world-renowned. Our colleagues are at the forefront of practice in their fields of:

  • poetry
  • folk and traditional music
  • fine art
  • heritage

We have a strong track record in innovative interdisciplinary working across sectors. Much of our work is co-produced with partners. Our influence is regional, national and international.

Home to prize winners

We are home to TS Eliot prize winners and the national poet laureate for Scotland, The Scots Makar. Our artists include Turner Prize nominees. Our musicians have BBC awards. We are also proud to host a UNESCO Chair of Cultural Property Protection and Peace.
