What the Workshop Entails

The Cultural and Creative Industries have an increasingly important role to play in economic growth, development and employment creation. In order to meet and fulfill the objectives of the national cultural policy, the South African Cultural Observatory officially invites you to its domain workshop, whose key aim is to provide ongoing dissemination of information, discussions and public engagement with the variety of stakeholders in the ACH and CCI sectors.

The workshop will be facilitated from the point of view of practitioners, policy-makers, arts managers and funders (public and private), academics and researchers who wish to contribute to dialogue in the Arts, Culture and Heritage sectors.

The workshop is free, lunch and refreshments will be served. The number of attendees is limited. Please register and confirm your attendance before the 25th October 2016 to secure your place as well as indicating any special dietary requirements.
