Call for creatives to get involved in South of Scotland research

Published:  2 February 2022

We are looking to find out more about how we can support the creative and cultural sector across Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders.

Businesses, employers, and freelancers working in the sector are being invited to complete an online questionnaire about their current activity, as well as their views on how the sector can be supported to flourish.

Through the research, being undertaken by consultants EKOS on behalf of SOSE, the agency is looking to improve its understanding of the current state of the creative and cultural sector across the south of Scotland.

The online survey will be complemented by a phone survey of creative organisations and employers across the region, taking place in February.

Online survey

The online survey is open now until Monday 28 February.

“The cultural and creative sector has a crucial role to play in supporting our vision of the South of Scotland as a centre of opportunity, innovation and growth.

“We want to support the sector to thrive, celebrating and enabling creativity and making the most of our regional strengths.

“The findings will help our work over the next few years, including what kind of support is required to help the sector recover from the impact of the pandemic, as well meeting new challenges and opportunities, such as the journey to Net Zero.”
