(Closed) Call for researchers: mapping creative spaces in Scotland

In partnership with Creative Scotland we are working to commission a piece of research that will provide a baseline study of the geographical spread, shape and size of creative spaces across Scotland. THIS CALL IS NOW CLOSED.

Impact Hub King's Cross

We are looking for an experienced and savvy researcher to undertake a mapping of creative spaces across Scotland.

Applicants should be based in Scotland and have an excellent knowledge and keen interest in this creative ecosystem (i.e. creative hubs, maker spaces and open access production spaces). You should also be connected to the sector and be able to call upon a national network. 

During 2018 we will work with UK partners to map creative spaces across Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

The first of its kind the research will shape the way in which both Creative Scotland and British Council work with, support and represent these spaces, while connecting them to national and international opportunities.
