Comment posted Challenge to local election candidates from Museums and Heritage Forum by Louise Glen-Lee.
Thanks for your comments.
We want to engage as soon as possible with those folks who work so well under extreme conditions in Heritage, Culture, Arts and Leisure.
I think this is an area where we can make some great progress, and we need to do that as quickly and as meaningfully as we can. The conversations we have had to date are progressive and positive. An SNP-led administration wants the best environment in which to work, we know that this area has been under-funded and under-developed and we want that to change. The folks involved in this debate are some of the key partners who should be involved in firming up policy. These are exciting times filled with possibility.

- Daniel…email anytime firstname.lastname@example.org, I am keen to hear from you.
Thank you for this debate – agree, disagree or fine tuning there is the possibility of change and it can only be a good thing. The status quo will suffocate us all.

develop, in association with Historic Scotland and other national agencies, a strategic plan for promoting our heritage.
reclaim local knowledge of our unique past by building a historical profile of Argyll and the islands.
maximise the number of young people and adults who have the opportunities to experience sport in their own community by developing plans to fit with Scottish Government funding.
- We are already talking with people at the highest level to pull together some exciting news for those in heritage, arts and culture, post election.
It’s time to recognise what we have here in Argyll and Bute to secure, stabilise and sustain it for the future.
There will be no pet projects – there will be a determined and strategic focus on building a future from our past.
We will engage with our hard working dedicated experts to ensure we can show off, what I believe to be the best examples of, Scottish life and history.
The rise in heritage tourism is not something we as councillors should ever take for granted. It could be the key to our future.
Later today I will post our key manifesto commitments in Heritage, Arts, Culture and Sport. I would do it now but I am looking over Appin to Lismore – heritage, culture, landscape and our future all in one view.
