Variant issue 42    [email protected]    back to issue list

Call for responses to interview with Andrew Dixon, Chief Executive of Creative Scotland 

For the forthcoming 15th year anniversary issue of Variant we are looking to form a series of analytical responses to issues raised by Andrew Dixon in his interview with Variant earlier this year (Spring, 2011).  

These responses will include relatively short 'think pieces' (500 words) and semi-structured interviews.

Discussion need not be confined to the content of the Andrew Dixon interview but may also include your experiences of more recent developments in the form and presence of Creative Scotland.

We appreciate your potential need for confidentiality in these matters and your responses will be printed only with your informed consent.

If you would like to contribute a short response or would like to be interviewed, please contact Variant before Tuesday 25th October 2011:
