Transformation, Ownership and Employment in the Cultural and Creative Industries in South Africa This Research Report 5 is the fourth in a series of five reports that forms deliverables of the 2020 economic mapping study. As it was the case with deliverables 2,3 and 4, this report is an update of a similar report that was produced in December 2017. Although it is important to note that the approach undertaken for the 2017 study was based to large extent on the 2014 DSAC mapping study, in this study an attempt is made not to rely heavily on this specific study.
