Welcome to the website for the Cross-Party Group on Culture.
Cross-Party Groups (CPGs) provide an opportunity for Members of all parties, outside organisations and members of the public to meet and discuss a shared interest in a particular cause or subject.
The next CPG on Culture will be held on Tuesday 6 September 2016 between 5.30pm-8.00pm at the Scottish Parliament in Committee Room 4.
This is the initial scoping meeting for the current Parliamentary Session. In order to continue as a Cross Party Group for the course of the next Parliament, the Group has to apply and be awarded recognition by the Standards Committee. At this initial session we will gauge interest in continuing the Group and discuss priorities and suggested topics for future meetings. We very much hope you are able to attend to underline the continued importance of the Group to MSPs and contribute your thoughts on future priorities.
The following draft agenda has been proposed (further information to follow).
5.30pm-6pm Social discussion
6.30pm-6.40pm Showreel of CPG to date
6.40pm-6.50pm Election of office bearers
6.50pm-7pm Overview of meetings to date
7pm-8pm Open discussion on future focus of the group
Unfortunately, due to room capacity we can only accommodate 40 non-MSPs at the meeting. We expect demand to be high so please email Kirstin.MacLeod@creativescotland.com to secure your spot.
