Culture matters: Culture Counts response to Brexit

Culture Counts is a network of 46 organisations – including the Traditional Music Forum and Traditional Dance Forum of Scotland – from across the arts, screen, heritage and creative industries in Scotland who in turn represent the majority of professional and voluntary artists and cultural organisations in Scotland. 

In response to the referendum vote to leave the EU, Culture Counts have produced a statement highlighting the potential impacts on cultural life in Scotland. It also asserts the value of culture to not just society but the economy and recommends that the cultural sector be involved and considered in any negotiations which will occur.
