Africa Month Festival of Ideas and Cultural Exchange
The National Arts Council of South Africa (NAC) is partnering with the prestigious Canadian Stage in Toronto in April to present six acclaimed local productions, showcasing some of SA’s leading performers, writers, directors and choreographers in a special three-week Spotlight South Africa festival.
The call is open to:
(a) individuals, particularly artists and creators;
(b) public bodies with specific responsibility for the promotion of culture and artistic creation;
(c) non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and non-profit private bodies whose objectives are in conformity with those of the Fund and whose activities contribute to the promotion of culture and artistic creation.
Priority is given to young artists and creators aged 18 to 30 years old.
Eligible activities fall under the following two categories:
- the production of cultural and artistic works;
- the organization of cultural and artistic events of national, regional and/or international scope contributing to the establishment of culture and development strategies and programmes.
The Department of Arts & Culture (DAC) invites you to attend consultation workshops to review the White Paper on Arts, Culture and Heritage (1996).
These workshops will provide arts practitioners, administrators and workers with an opportunity to make inputs into the revised White Paper process.
Since its adoption in 1996, the White Paper has provided a key policy framework for the Department and the Arts, Culture and Heritage sector. It has been a pivotal document for the transformation, protection and preservation of the arts, culture and heritage sector in South Africa in pursuit of social cohesion and nation building.
