This report presents the conclusions and recommendations from a study commissioned by Creative Scotland. The overall purpose was to identify an appropriate approach and method for examining the economic impact of the A&CI in Scotland to inform a second stage of work in which a full economic impact study (EIS) will be undertaken. In summary, the study had three principal aims, viz: to recommend an approach and define what is and what is not achievable through an EIS of Scotland’s A&CI; to recommend a model and approach for gathering information on the impact of Scotland’s A&CI that can be easily replicated by partners, organisations, collectives and individuals on a longitudinal basis; and Economic Impact Scoping Study: Executive Summary to explore whether the second stage of the work (the EIS) could be usefully undertaken in partnership with others at the UK, Scottish and local levels and, if so, to recommend the best approaches that should be adopted.
