SCAN update

Over the next few months we will be taking SCAN through a period of organisational review and re engagement with the sector and our members.

Our immediate activity will include,

• Developing our board so that all specialisms within the sector are represented.

• Consulting the sector through face-to-face meetings, a series of open meetings across the country and an online survey.

• Getting our website up and running properly.

• Sharing sector and member specific information through our website and e-blasts.

• Encouraging debate, conversations and networking through our social media channels.

The information gathered from the consultation meetings will feed into our plan of activity for April 14 onwards. This activity will include research and development, sector wide professional development activities, partnership projects and potential development of our membership structure and costs.

SCAN has played an active part in engaged advocacy with policy makers and funders over the last year alongside other network agencies namely the Federation of Scottish Theatres, Craft Scotland and the Scottish Literature Forum. We will continue this work and update our members on an ongoing basis.

We will also continue to work closely with complimentary organisations and projects such as Arts & Business Scotland, Culture Sparks, AmbITion, The Cultural Enterprise Office and engage Scotland for the collective benefit of the visual arts sector.
