Creative Communities

The Award

Individuals who have a learning disability have the power to express their creative and artistic talent and engage with the world, with the potential to impact the lives of others and to change attitudes in our society. There is huge creative talent in Scotland’s communities and we want to hear about it. That is why we want to recognise the creative talent within Scotland’s communities.

This award is open for nominations across all creative disciplines. Whether your nominee(s) write, dance, sing, produce visual art, act, perform music or are involved in something completely unique, we want to hear about it!
