This summer, our #ArtUnlocks campaign is all about getting MSPs out to see what our members do every day: creating and support amazing art, that makes a real contribution to our communities.

The campaign invites MSPs to experience the positive impact of contemporary art in their constituencies, while also making a public commitment to support artists and art in communities. MSPs are encouraged to share their experience of contemporary art in their own constituency via social media using #ArtUnlocks.

Key Campaign Themes:

Given the right support and investment art organisations and artists can be at the heart of the national recovery and our wellbeing economy and bring new thinking and perspectives to what will be a complex and difficult path to recovery.

  • This summer we want to tell policy makers what art and artists contribute to communities across the country, our themes are:
  • • Art Unlocks Climate Action
  • • Art Unlocks International Collaboration
  • • Art Unlocks Investment
  • • Art Unlocks Placemaking
  • • Art Unlocks Talent
  • • Art Unlocks Wellbeing

The aims of #ArtUnlocks are informed by the Visual Arts Manifesto, which was created in collaboration with Scottish Artists Union and Engage.
