ONFife chief executive on group shaping Scotland’s cultural strategy

1 July 2020

ONFife chief executive Heather Stuart is one of 14 experts on a new group formed to deliver Scotland’s culture strategy.

The National Partnership for Culture (NPC), which met for the first time last week, is made up of leading figures from across the country’s culture sector.

The group will advise on challenges facing the sector from Covid-19 and will build on the recommendations recently set out to the First Minister by the Advisory Group on Economic Recovery.

Heather Stuart said: “As we emerge from the pandemic I believe we will need culture and the arts more than ever to give voice to our shared experiences. I’m delighted to have this opportunity to have input on the strategy which will help shape the future of the sector.”

The group is chaired by Joanna Baker CBE, former Edinburgh International Festival managing director, who has more than 30 years experience of Scotland’s cultural scene.

The other main objectives of the partnership will be to provide advice and guidance on key strategic issues affecting culture in Scotland; champion A Culture Strategy for Scotland and make recommendations on delivering the Strategy’s vision, ambitions and aims; and establish a Measuring Change Group to advise on appropriate measures, data and research for decision-making on culture matters.
