Freire The Political Aspiration “The Scottish Government is fully committed to widening access to culture for all communities…Our future cultural policy framework will be one that affirms the place of culture in this nation…We plan to take this forward in partnership with those who have a major role to play” Jack McConnell The Social Policy Value of Arts and Culture ‘…the arts can and do make a valuable contribution to social policy objectives. While there is still a long way to go in understanding these forces and the ways in which they work, it is time that social policy makers took up the challenge of thinking how they might be harnessed.’ F. Matarasso
