THE SACO invites you to participate in a training workshop on Monitoring & Evaluation of Publicly funded Arts,Culture and Heritage with Prof Jen Snowball (South African Cultural Observatory Chief Economist) and Prof Geoff Antrobus (South African Cultural Observatory Research Fellow).

CALLING ALL

Cultural and creati ve industry practitioners and researchers, officials from relevant government departments and divisions, postgraduate students, and academics researching in or working in relevant fields.

WHAT THE WORKSHOP ENTAILS

The cultural and creative industries have an increasingly important role to play in economic growth, development and employment creati on. Tracking the impact of public and private funding in the cultural sector helps to monitor policy and funding eff ecti veness and to identi fy high-potential sectors. The workshop will address questi ons relati ng to the expression of the value of arts and culture, and how that value can be measured using a valuati on framework linked to indicators. Using the Mzansi Golden Economy (MGE) funding initiative as an example, the course will demonstrate how diff erent kinds of value can be expressed and how the valuation framework can be applied to a diverse range of arts, culture and heritage projects. The course is presented from the point of view of both arts funders (public and private) and industry practitioners and managers who wish to demonstrate the value of their projects to funders, communiti es and society at large.

The workshop is free and lunch and refreshments will be served.
Space is limited, so please register and confirm your attendance before Friday 3rd February 2017 to secure your place.
