Richard Holloway was Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church.  A former Gresham Professor of Divinity and Chairman of the Joint Board of the Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Screen, he is a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.  He has written for many newspapers in Britain, including The Times, Guardian, Observer, Herald and Scotsman, and has presented many series for BBC television and radio.  He is the author of over twenty books, the most recent of which, Leaving Alexandria: a Memoir of Faith and Doubt, was published in 2012.

The Honorary Degree of Doctor of the University was conferred on Richard Holloway by the University of Stirling in June 2010.

Creative Space and Socio-Economic Development is a new initiative by the Stirling Management School, in partnership with the Art Collection at the University of Stirling, Forth Valley College and the macrobert.  The project has the broad aim of focusing on the relationship between art and people's engagement, and how this contributes to individual wellbeing.  We suggest that people's openness and access to artistic activities, for example visual and performing arts, lead to the stimulation and expression of creativity and critical thinking and may in turn be conducive to wider participation in societies and economies.
