This morning we welcomed Maree Todd MSP to our studio in Burra Isle to share with her the role artists can play in developing dynamic community initiatives!

The meeting was organised via a gentle nudge from the Scottish Contemporary Art Network (SCAN) as part of their #ArtInAction campaign.

‘Culture and creativity are not an add-on; they are part and parcel of how we live our lives.’

Art in Action is a campaign from Scottish Contemporary Art Network (SCAN) which aims to champion the valuable role visual art plays within communities across Scotland – and to call for stronger recognition of this value when it comes to decision-making.

Over the summer recess MSPs will be invited to see for themselves the positive impact of visual art in their constituencies. They’ll be encouraged to share their experience via social media using #ArtInAction – and to make a public commitment to support artists and art in their communities.
