Central to Scotland’s creative economy is Creative Scotland, the national agency, which sits within the broader context of creative and cultural provision. For the first time a corporate plan has been produced that includes working across the span of Scotland’s Creative and Cultural Industries (CCIs) with a diverse range of partners. This paper focuses on the current status of Scotland’s Creative Economy, particularly the little studied Creative Rural Economy. The paper then examines definitions, convergence on key issues and the move from list-based categorisation to more refined analyses. An international comparison including another creative rural economy is also attempted. Policy and practice is assessed with reference to the interconnectedness of creative nation, city, region, project, place and people alongside themes such as partnership, skills, infrastructure, design, spillovers and sector growth. Lastly, the unique needs of the Creative Rural Economy are highlighted as well as the requirement for dedicated business and support tools.
