What does Scottish creativity mean to you?

It’s the year of Creative Scotland and therefore a pretty opportune time to celebrate and tell the story of Scottish creativity. An excellent new project which has the aim of doing just that has recently been launched by writer, Ian Rankin. The See Us project is a joint collaboration between Creative Scotland, Young Scot, The Scotsman and very appropriately Scottish founded startup Blipfoto.

Basically everyone, no matter where they are in the world is invited to post a photo and a short description which captures what Scottish creativity means to them. It could be a photo of a craftsman at work, a music festival, a piece of art, whatever... 

The overall premise is to tell a story of creative Scotland in pictures. The long term aim is to curate the best 100 entries into a commemorative book and touring exhibition.

The Edinburgh based Blipfoto platform is used by people all over the world every day and in fact has around 16 million views per month. The hope is that as the project builds momentum, a mapping function will be added so that it will be possible to plot the entries and hopefully see participants from all across the globe. It is this all inclusiveness which will help make the project a real success.

If you would like to get involved and help tell the creative Scottish story then do it today, add your photo of creative Scotland.
