On Tuesday I was in Edinburgh where Jemma and I met Janet Archer, the new Chief Executive of Creative Scotland. We talked about the current activities of Voluntary Arts Scotland, the development of the new Voluntary Arts Strategic Plan 2014-17 and our planned work in Scotland over the next few years. We discussed Creative Scotland’s new Annual Plan 2013-14, particularly Strategic Outcome 2 “Access to, and participation in, the arts and creative activity increases year on year across Scotland, particularly from equality groups and people from less advantaged backgrounds” and the proposed strategic partnership with Voluntary Arts Scotland. We also briefed Janet on Epic Awards 2014 – the winners’ reception for which will take place at Platform in Easterhouse, Glasgow in February 2014. It was a positive, interesting and wide-ranging first discussion with the new Chief Executive.
