Glasgow City Council, with support from Bòrd na Gàidhlig (BnG), commissioned DC Research Ltd. – in partnership with Prof Mike Danson, Dr Douglas Chalmers and Eilidh Danson – to carry out a research study about the ‘Gaelic Economy in Glasgow’.
The aim of the study was to demonstrate the value, growth, and impact of Gaelic in Glasgow. The study sought to estimate the economic value of Gaelic, show the growth in its use, and illustrate how the language and culture impacted on the wellbeing of Glasgow.
The scope of the Gaelic Economy in Glasgow is set out in the main report, and this reflects the key sectors for Gaelic in Glasgow – i.e., Creative Industries; Education and Learning; Tourism, Hospitality and Events; and Language Promotion and Development – as well as the contribution of Gaelic to wellbeing.
