This report is the result of an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) ‘Cultural Engagement’ project, conducted between February and May 2013 with the aim of identifying the strengths and gaps in provision of development support (including but not limited to financial support) provided by the state for Scottish music businesses.

A primary criterion for the Cultural Engagement research was that it involve a non-academic partner. In this case, that partner was the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA). Board members and non board members of the SMIA were interviewed. We also conducted an online survey of the SMIA members regarding their knowledge of support provision and experiences of trying to access it. The SMIA co-operated on this research by advising on interviewees and by sending the online survey out to its membership.
