Working together for a better Orkney

Orkney Arts Forum

Orkney Arts Forum supports the development of arts and culture within Orkney. The forum consists of representatives from artforms including music, visual arts, literature, drama, dance, storytelling, craft, architecture and new media, and film as well as key organisations and community groups. The forum meets quarterly to discuss the priorities for the arts in Orkney and acts as a consultation group for the arts development service within Orkney Islands Council.

Orkney Arts Development Strategy

A 10 year strategic vision for the Arts in Orkney

The Orkney Arts Forum is in the process of developing a new arts development strategy for Orkney. This new strategy follows on from Orkney’s Creative Landscape and it is hoped will provide a context for the work of Orkney’s arts and creative sector over the next ten years.

Orkney Arts Forum is now seeking feedback on the draft strategy. The public consultation period is now open and will run until 20 October. You can respond by completing the consultation feedback form and returning this to:

Antony Mottershead, Arts Officer, Education, Leisure and Housing Services, Council Offices, School Place, Kirkwall, KW15 1NY

Alternatively you can email your comments to antony.mottershead@orkney.gov.uk.
