Art in Action is all about getting MSPs out to see amazing art, that makes a real contribution to our communities. There are four easy ways to get involved:

1. Invite your MSP

Ask your local MSP to come and see you at work, if you are an artist, or to visit an exhibition, studio or event that you are involved in. Find your MSP’s contact details at

Use our template to pop into an email or even send by snail mail. Feel free to personalise it and remember to add your name and address so your MP will know that you are one of their constituents. We’ve put together a list of MSPs we know are supportive, and/or are already part of the Parliament’s Cross Party Group on Culture.

Check out our key messages to see what we are saying about why contemporary visual art matters in Scottish life.

2. Share on social media

Share the visit using #ArtInAction and we’ll repost it to our followers on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds.

3. Use the Art Map

Our Art Map shows the location of contemporary arts organisations across Scotland. It has been designed to raise the visibility of the breadth and variety of activity across Scotland, and be a useful research tool for artists, writers, curators and everyone involved or interested in the arts in Scotland. Read more about the map or find out how to add your organisation.

4. Show support for the campaign 

Add a Twibbon to your social media profile pic.

Print out an ‘I’ve Seen Art in Action’ banner for your visiting MSP to hold. Download it here.

Order your Art in Action badges to share with your visitors and to wear to promote the campaign. Contact us to let us know how many you would like.
