Responses sought to Creative Scotland's Draft Gaelic Language Plan
Monday 18th June 2012
Creative Scotland's draft Gaelic Language Plan sets out how it will use Gaelic in its operations, communications and in its investment in arts and culture in Scotland in order to:
- Enhance the status of Gaelic language and culture
- Promote the acquisition and learning of Gaelic
- Encourage the increased use of Gaelic
Creative Scotland’s engagement with Gaelic language and culture is already extensive through investment and support for artists and organisations who, in turn, support and promote Gaelic language and culture through their work. However, Creative Scotland recognises that it could be doing more to promote Gaelic language and culture and this plan clarifies the nature of its future commitment. Creative Scotland is fully supportive of Gaelic language as a vital part of Scottish cultural life and aims to continue to expand this support further.
You can view an online copy of the Plan here.
