Call To Action From Edinburgh’s Cultural Community
Please find below a link to the Desire Lines report, Call To Action From Edinburgh’s Cultural Community’, which was published this week.
The Desire Lines process arose from the ongoing review of the Council’s Cultural Policy which aims to reflect a citywide agenda. A Representative Peer Group from the cultural sector was identified and this group delivered a major consultation involving over 600 participants, which included events, discussions and an online survey.
The Desire Lines document will be presented to the Culture & Sport Committee on 26 May, asking the Committee to welcome the extensive consultation as well as the full engagement of the cultural community in the Desire Lines process and in the further progress of its findings.
This co-operative process was designed to ensure that the Policy reflects as broad a range of voices as possible and can subsequently be taken forward in partnership. This approach reflects the understanding that the Council’s role is that of a key partner in the cooperative delivery of the cultural ambitions of the city.
Leith Creative is a research project mapping cultural resources and creative industries within the Leith area. Since the beginning of the year, a variety of cultural representatives in Leith alongside individual creatives and practitioners have participated in this project.
