The Department of Arts and Culture is continuing on its programme of sub-sector consultations for the white paper review process on Arts, Culture and Heritage Sector. Sub-sectorial consultations for next week will take place in Bloemfontein, Cape Town and Pretoria.
Last year during October and November 2015, the Department of Arts and Culture embarked on public consultations on the revision White Paper on Arts, Culture and Heritage Sector in all nine provinces and these consultations were followed by the National Indaba which was held from 26-27 November 2015.
This year the white paper review process is intending to focus at the sub-sectors on arts, culture and heritage. The consultations are being held in various provinces to give the public and interested parties an opportunity to contribute to the White Paper Review Process. To this end, the department has hosted sub-sectorial consultations in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town respectively.
The report on the white paper wide-sectoral indaba is available.
