Artists for Independence | National Collective | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it

In the words of the fantastic Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz TV series; Look around you. Not, around you, but around this article. Look at this website. To the right, you’ll see creative projects campaigning innovatively for independence, you’ll see recommended articles, some of them by incredibly well revered and prominent Scottish artists. You’ll see that this website has a combined Facebook and Twitter following of over 10,000, and over 1,200 members. You’ll see links to other websites supporting a more engaging referendum debate. Look down. You’ll see photos exploring cultures and communities in Scotland, right next to more recommended articles by more prominent artists and creatives discussing why they support independence.

Arts of independence with Sandy Moffat and Alan Riach

Arts of independence with Sandy Moffat and Alan Riach | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it

Prepare for the contentious. In their new book, 'Arts of independence', Alexander Moffat and Alan Riach take a hard look at the most neglected aspect of the argument for Scotland's distinctive national identity — the arts. Their proposition is that music, painting, architecture and, pre-eminently, literature are the fuel and fire that make imagination possible. 'There is only one argument for Scottish independence: the cultural argument'. Come and take part in this vital debate.
