M & E Summative Report The South African Department of Arts and Culture (DAC) embarked on a strategy to reposition the arts, culture and heritage sector to address social cohesion, creation of sustainable jobs and ensuring social and economic development. The Mzansi Golden Economy (MGE) was launched in 2011 to unlock the South African cultural economy by making strategic investments to optimise the economic benefit of the arts and to enhance the sector’s global competitiveness. An evaluation of the five sub-categories (National and Provincial Flagships, Festivals and Events, Touring Ventures, Public Arts and Miscellaneous) of the cultural events that receive funding as part of the MGE programme was conducted.
