Celebrate Culture & Business Fund Scotland
SCO Chief Executive Gavin Reid and Business Insider Editor Ken Symon were delighted to celebrate the Culture & Business Fund Scotland and our new partnership at an Arts & Business Scotland Reception in the Garden Lobby at the Scottish Parliament on Thursday 27th September 2018.
The event was hosted by Joan McAlpine MSP and attended by Fiona Hyslop MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs. We were proud to see the Digital Orchestra of Drake Music Scotland, one of our Creative Partners, giving an excellent performance on the evening, led by Artistic Director Pete Sparkes.
Speaking of our partnership with insider.co.uk, Ken Symon commented "There is a lot for business to gain from linking with the arts in everything from spending an enjoyable and inspiring evening after a hard day's work through to gaining some thoughtful input on leadership, team work and dedication. The Culture & Business Fund Scotland makes a hugely significant contribution in bringing the two together and in helping fund mutually supportive initiatives like the Scottish Chamber Orchestra's valued partnership with insider.co.uk."
Gavin Reid expressed our enthusiasm for the partnership: "It's a fantastic opportunity for us to develop our contacts and our networks within the business community. We've got a great partnership with Ken Symon and his team at insider.co.uk and we have ambitions to take things forward into the following year."
The Culture & Business Fund Scotland (CBFS) enables business and arts or heritage organisations to come together and build effective, sustainable partnerships, bringing creative projects – large and small – vividly to life across Scotland. In a 2017 YouGov poll commissioned by Arts & Business Scotland, involving responses from 1,015 members of the public, 77% of people polled agree that supporting local cultural and heritage projects reflects well on businesses.
