Tell us your vision for co-production in Scotland

With Co-production Week Scotland coming to an end we'd like to remind you to spend the last couple of days thinking about your vision for
Co-production in Scotland.

We've had loads of responses already and we're seeing clear messages about the importance of co-production becoming the new normal, how we need to shift the balance of power towards those furthest away from it and how co-production doesn't happen overnight: it takes time, effort and resource.

Here's some of the visions people have submitted as part of the week:

  • "People see participation as 'standard operating procedure'"
     
  • "Artists can demonstrate shared authorship in diverse ways enabling community empowerment #CoProWeekScot"
     
  • "Shifting power at all levels towards people with lived experience"
     
  • "Working together using the skills and abilities of all people and valuing community action as the way forward for people and planet."
     
  • “It's a continuous approach, it doesn't just happen at the start of something”
     
  • "Museums co-curate, working 'with not for' communities/localities -to collectively steward heritage #CoProWeekScot"
     
  • “Working together using the skills and abilities of all people and valuing community action as the way forward for people and planet.”
     
  • "Communities are at the heart of the decisions that affect them."
     
  • "That it continues to grow, develop and reach out as a way of achieving more equitable public service development and delivery."

From here we'll be compiling all of these responses into a national vision for co-production in Scotland early next year - so have your say about what you want co-production to look like in Scotland.

We'll be in touch next week with a full round-up of Co-production Week Scotland - we hope you've enjoyed the week and a big thank you to everyone involved!
