To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to tackle the prejudice and stigma that disabled musicians might face.

Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 26 March 2018

There is no place for prejudice or stigma of any kind in Scotland. Culture contributes to the development of a fairer and more diverse Scotland and as a Government we are committed to tackling inequality and making Scotland a stronger, fairer, more inclusive society, including within the culture sector. The initial engagement phase of Scotland’s Culture Strategy demonstrates a strong desire for tackling inequalities to be a central part of its vision and priorities.
