Commenting on the publication of the latest stage of developing a cultural strategy for Scotland, Professor Jeffrey Sharkey, Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland said:

“The vibrant discourse and debate around Scotland’s new cultural strategy is real evidence of the vital importance of culture in all its forms to people and communities across the nation. As the nation’s conservatoire, we particularly welcome the growing recognition that education, excellence – and diverse pathways to achieve it – and internationalism all have essential roles to play at the heart of Scotland’s cultural strategy.

“The real success of this strategy will not be reflected in numbers and metrics, but in a new national vitality and vigour that can be seen in successive generations across all of Scotland enjoying a richer, more rewarding personal and communal life, engaged in their communities, confident in their self-expression. Education in all its forms will be key to that success.”
