Why is the arts important?
The artistic sector has the power to influence, educate and help people overcome their negative feelings, even help them overcome disease. The artists are the voice of the people; they reflect the joys, sorrows and problems of the society. Also, arts have the power to foresee and predict the changes that will happen in the future, even prevent or invent.
Why apply for funding?
Art is a beautiful sector and it is a joy to be able to practice either one of its branches, on a beginner, advanced or professional level. There are many talented artists who are obliged to let go off their passions because of the lack of funding. Arts Trust Scotland wants to offer a hand to those talents that can influence positively the society.
