Scotland’s arts and culture sector will benefit from £97 million to mitigate the impact from the coronavirus downturn.
This funding is part of a £1.57 billion investment by the UK Government to protect Britain’s world-class cultural, arts and heritage institutions.
UK Government update states: "Thousands of organisations across a range of sectors including the performing arts and theatres, heritage, historic palaces, museums, galleries, live music and independent cinema will be able to access emergency grants and loans.
The money, which represents the biggest ever one-off investment in UK culture, will provide a lifeline to vital cultural and heritage organisations across the country hit hard by the pandemic. It will help them stay afloat while their doors are closed. Funding to restart paused projects will also help support employment, including freelancers working in these sectors."
