Glasgow School of Art expansion to create 20 jobs in Forres

About 20 jobs are set to be created in Moray as The Glasgow School of Art expands its small design institute.

An investment of £10m is being made in a new campus in Forres.

The Glasgow School of Art already runs the Institute of Design Innovation in Forres, a small satellite centre which works with businesses on product development and creative research.

It is joining forces with Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to create 20 new jobs and sustain 10 existing posts.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney, who will visit the Forres base on Wednesday, said it was particularly impressive that despite the enormous challenges the art school has faced after last year's fire in Glasgow it was continuing to move forward.
