as always the costs will be kept as affordable as possible respecting that our leader has to earn a living too .
According to our current lead councillor at a open meeting in Oban (Feb 2015), we do not need Culture.
He rather arrogantly dismissed and disdained it (mostly with regard to the Oban Community Trust application for Rockfield Centre, but it was a shock nonetheless).
Maybe it is the lack of understanding of what culture is that is the issue.
Do our local politicians think that culture is a bit of knitting, some tartan tat, and bagpipes ?
How do we get them to understand that our Culture includes so much more? how we treat each other, how we make our economic decisions, how we exist in our environment and how our past informs our future, all these and so much more is Our Culture.
What is Culture? ~ What is Cultural sustainability?
Maybe this is why it is so hard to persuade Argyll and Bute Council to invest wholeheartedly with the Arts, Culture and Heritage Assembly that was initiated by former Councillor Louise Glen-Lee. Creative Scotland is providing a great package with their Place Partnerships – and our Library and Culture Development Officer has been working tirelessly with our various community Heritage, Arts and Cultural organisations.
