Creative Communities Evaluation Report
Between 2020 and 2022 the Creative Communities Programme supported 46 community and arts organisations across Scotland to deliver creative projects to over 15,000 adults and children. These included young people in secure care, refugees and asylum seekers, and people living with profound and multiple disabilities.
Research Scotland completed an independent evaluation of the Scotland-wide Creative Communities Programme. They concluded that Creative Communities projects:
Provided the opportunity for people to engage in creative arts that they would not have otherwise, have fun and feel joy and pride
Brought people together, building connections and reducing loneliness – which was particularly important during, and emerging from, the pandemic; and
Helped participants develop a wide range of improved skills around creativity, digital engagement and skills for life, learning and work.Download the full report
