National Museums Scotland has launched a consultation on its draft Gaelic Language Plan.

With a deadline of 5pm on Monday 10 April 2017, National Museums would like to hear views from all interested individuals and external organisations.

The new plan will run from 2017-2021 and will be developed in line with the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005.

The purpose of the plan is to set out National Museums Scotland’s commitment to the aspirations and objectives in the National Plan for Gaelic, in the context of the organisation’s wider vision – to connect Scotland to the world and the world to Scotland – and in relation to the breadth of our collections in what is one of the largest multidisciplinary collections in the UK.

The consultation will run for six weeks, closing on Monday 10 April 2017.
