It is to set out in November what independence will mean for Scotland's artists, writers, filmmakers, dancers, theatre and arts companies if people vote Yes in the referendum.
There had been rumours this week in the arts world that the Scottish Government was writing a new Cultural Strategy.
However, senior government sources say that no new strategy or document is being produced, but instead all government decisions about culture are being based on the Talbot Rice Memorial Lecture earlier this year, which was delivered by Fiona Hyslop, the Culture Secretary.
Civil servants had consulted some arts figures in the lead up to the Talbot Rice speech, which was delivered in June, but the conclusions of those talks, sources say, fed into the speech and were not a new strategy document.
"The Talbot Rice speech is the blueprint for the future," one source said.
Ms Hyslop said supporting culture and the arts should not be measured for their benefit in pounds and pence but valued because they are our "heart, our soul, our essence".
Five issues within that speech are being woven into government policy, and will be further articulated in the document.
