Since 2009, the AmbITion Scotland programme has been helping Scotland’s cultural community get digitally fitter through providing organisational support, change facilitation and strategic development. After five great years its time to focus on the future.
The national programme has provided capability, confidence, capacity building, learning opportunities and funding. It has facilitated new connections within the digital media, technology and higher education sectors. This has enabled Scottish arts, culture and heritage organisations to take advantage of the opportunities of digital technologies, becoming more efficient in their operations. It has helped organisations become more innovative in their business models, experimental in their art and content creation, and effective in their engagement with the public.
AmbITion Scotland has been managed by Culture Republic these past five years in partnership with The AmbITion Approach’s creator, Rudman Consulting. The programme has been supported by The National Lottery funds via Creative Scotland.
Though the Make:IT:Happen fund is currently closed, there are many other sources of funding for digital projects.
