Research Agenda_including inputs from DAC This document presents the Research Agenda for the arts, heritage, cultural and creative sectors of South Africa for the 2018/19 financial year as formulated by the South African Cultural Observatory. The purpose of this Research Agenda is to define and focus research efforts and resources towards achieving research outputs that would enhance the development of the arts, heritage and cultural and creative sectors in South Africa and advance the policy imperatives of the South African Government and its key stakeholders. This document therefore aims to: define research requirements; define individual research agenda items required to address the research requirements of the industry; and determine the alignment of proposed research agenda items with strategic and policy imperatives.
