About

Cultivate, Champion and Connect

Patrick Harvie, Art in Action visit to Platform Easterhouse, August 2019

We’re here to stand up for the cultural, social and economic value of contemporary art – and for the people who create it. Through our projects, events and online resources we aim to bring the contemporary visual art community together and link in with wider conversations that shape the kind of world we want to live in.

SCAN is a not-for-profit charitable organisation with a small team who work alongside a range of collaborators and freelancers. The majority of our Board is made up of SCAN members who are artists or who work within contemporary visual arts.

All work is based on the principles of the Visual Arts Manifesto, which we co-created with Scottish Artists Union and Engage.

We welcome all. Find out how to join.
