British Council Scotland
Established in Edinburgh in 1946, British Council Scotland was instrumental in the creation of the first Edinburgh International Festival in 1947. Since then they have continued to bring international academics, policymakers and artists to Scotland and take counterparts abroad. They promote Scottish cultural talent and assets as a distinct part of the UK’s cultural offering. Through this Scotland becomes more visible and better connected to the right people and places. The Corner Shop PR works with British Council on a range of cultural projects such as Momentum, CURRENT, Alchemy Glasgow, Below another sky and more.
British Council’s work in education deals with both schools and universities. By encouraging transnational connections between academic systems, through the dynamic exchange of knowledge, ideas and information, they contribute to building trust and understanding between people and nations.
This is something that is essential if we are to face global challenges and provide a more secure and prosperous world for future generations.
We work with British Council Scotland on a range of education events as well as promoting platforms for teachers and pupils that help them build international learning community (Connecting Classrooms, eTwinning, Learners International).
