An initiative to encourage people to tell the story of Scottish creativity began today, a result of a collaboration between Creative Scotland, Blipfoto, Young Scot and The Scotsman.
The ‘See Us’ initiative, launched by writer Ian Rankin, will run for the next three months, involving people across Scotland and the world, with the aim of encouraging them to submit photographs and stories to summarise what Scottish creativity means today.
The result photo-journal, which will be held by online journal Blipfoto, will aim to cover all aspects of creativity, from art to creative acts.
Joe Tree, chief executive of Blipfoto said: "This is a huge opportunity to take a snapshot of every aspect of Scotland's creativity, through the eyes of all its people. I'm thrilled that Blipfoto is playing such an important role in the project, and really excited about what we're going to create."
Kenneth Fowler of Creative Scotland added: “This initiative is a great opportunity for people from all walks of life to capture the role that creativity plays in their lives, whatever that may be. We want people to get involved and help us build a comprehensive picture of what our creative Scotland looks like in 2012.”
Entries will be curated within an exhibition and published in the Autumn.
