CPG on Culture

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 14 March 2017 between 5.30pm-8.00pm at the Scottish Parliament in Committee Room 1.

The meeting will look at Cultural Regeneration – can planners and artists work together? A full agenda will be made available in due course, however we expect the meeting to follow the usual format:

  • 5.30pm-6pm                      Social Discussion
  • 6pm-6.15pm                      Performances/provocations
  • 6.15pm-7.00pm                 Panel Discussion
  • 7pm-8pm                           Group Discussion

Confirmed panellists for the meeting include:

  • Matt Baker, Orchestrator, The Stove Network
  • Petra Biberbach, Chief Executive, Planning Aid for Scotland
  • Peter McCaughey, Director, WAVEparticle
  • Kate Wimpress, Director, North Edinburgh Arts

Unfortunately, due to room capacity we can only accommodate 60 non-MSPs at the meeting. We expect demand to be high so please RSVP in order to secure your spot by emailing Kirstin.MacLeod@creativescotland.com.
