Scotland’s New Strategic Policy Redefines “Culture”


Scotland recently released a new national cultural strategy that sets a high standard for other countries around the world. It actively seeks to broaden the definition of culture, boldly aiming to reduce the “silo” identity around arts and culture and welcoming diverse cultural influences into an expanding definition of 21st century Scottish culture. Further, it seeks to “place culture as a central consideration across all policy areas, including: health and wellbeing, economy, education, reducing inequality, and realizing a greener and more innovative future.” In the country that has supported the best researched and most widely studied Sistema program outside Venezuela—Big Noise/Sistema Scotland—the government further demonstrates its progressive commitment to the importance of culture for every member of society.
