A Scottish Wave of Change is part of the Cultural Olympiad – which addresses the future, stories and change. It is about aiding and encouraging discussion, stories, creativity and hope in a mass imagination project, opening up and democratising the future.
The project has a national remit as well as an international reach – using the Olympic and Paralympic values to begin an exploration of the values, hopes and aspirations people would like to see in the Scotland of the future. It has significant community projects, working in Govan, Dundee and Lochgilphead developing local futures contributing to a different national future, while supporting a group of young people to sail around Scotland – creating stories of the future. It has many other different strands and activities – all of which are centred on opening up debate, ideas and aiding people to have the confidence to create their own future.
