Enlightening the Constitutional Debate: Culture & Broadcasting

This event has passed

Discussion Forum

On 24 August 2013 the RSE held a public discussion seminar on the impact of constitutional change on the culture of Scotland. It posed questions on whether Scotland’s artistic, literary and cultural contribution will be enhanced should people choose independence, or whether there is strong evidence that during the three hundred years of the Union Scotland has maintained a vibrant and distinct cultural identity.

It also examined the impact that there might be on the media in Scotland, whether broadcasting, the traditional printed media, or new outlets that have emerged in recent years through the rapid growth of digital communications.
