The Minister of Arts and Culture Mr Nathi Mthethwa will hold an Imbizo with the community, practitioners in the arts, and culture and heritage sector at Nelspruit in Mpumalanga.

The imbizo aims at exposing the community, Youth and arts practitioners of Mbombela to the work of the Department of Arts, Culture and Heritage. The focus will be on the role of the creative industry in stimulating investment and job creation in Mpumalanga.

The day will mark a period of intensified activity where the Minister will interact with the ordinary members of the public, Artists and Youth. This will assist to identify where there are still shortcomings in order to ensure there is continuous effort to improve service delivery.

Whilst imbizo is an effective forum for enhancing dialogue, promoting public participation and interaction between government and people, it also provides an opportunity for government to communicate its programme of action and the progress being made to improve the lives of the people.
