We are delighted to have the support of The Famous Grouse to deliver The Famous Grouse Ideas Centre an innovation lab for the creative and digital sectors.

Having its origins in Perth we are delighted to be associated with such a successful and well recognised global brand. The origins of the brand can be traced to Perth entrepreneur – Matthew Gloag – who created the Famous Grouse blend in Perth in 1896, with the history of the business dating from 1800.


Scape ReInvest Communities Fund supports the Creative Pipeline element of the programme; Scape Reinvest is a unique social investment fund. It is designed to benefit the communities of the clients of The Scape Group by returning modest surpluses to community projects. The Scape Group is a public sector organisation, dedicated to creating efficiency & social value via the built environment.



The innovation and design technology is made available to individuals and enterprises thanks to funding granted through The Scottish Cities Alliance from the Cities Investment Fund and European Regional Development Fund


The regeneration of the former St John’s Primary School to create Creative Exchange has been supported by The Scottish Government through the Regeneration Capital Grant Fund;  The Regeneration Capital Grant Fund, delivered in partnership with COSLA and local government, supports locally developed regeneration projects that involve local communities, helping to support and create jobs and build sustainable communities.


Aligned to Scottish and UK Governments policies, Perth & Kinross Council are committed to supporting the Cultural and Creative Sectors.
