In late August and September 2022, Creative Lives organised three 'Creative Assemblies' in locations across Scotland, facilitated by arts consultant Sarah Longfield.

Designed as informal, friendly spaces, these events sought to find out from the people engaged and active in the arts what is working well and what the challenges are for volunteer and community-led arts activity in their region.

We visited North Ayrshire, the Scottish Borders and Aberdeenshire and are grateful to the people and groups who gave up their time to speak to us. 

You can read Sarah's findings from the assemblies in her report, here.
