Scotland is one of the oldest nations in Europe. Like all nations, it is a product of cultural imagination, built upon centuries of history, art, literature and shared experience.
Whilst academia has its place, our primary aim is to make Scottish history and culture more accessible through a variety of creative projects – bringing together what the poet Hugh MacDiarmid described as ‘all the loose ends of Scotland’ in order to express the whole.
Our aim is to celebrate Scottish history, culture and the arts by showcasing exciting new work from across the country, as well as developing our own in-house projects to shed new light on Scotland’s national story.
Our outlook is open, inclusive, and international, celebrating Scotland’s historical and cultural links across the globe. By highlighting many different aspects of Scottish culture, we hope to inspire fresh perspectives, challenge preconceptions, and encourage Scotland’s creativity and imagination.
The Scots Curator was founded in January 2021 by writer and artist Andrew Redmond Barr.
