Shukuma Mzansi! International Community Arts Centres Dialogue to implement National CAC Policy in Municipalities




Posted: 26 February 2020

The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) has partnered with the National Department of Arts and Culture, the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA), as well as municipal arts, culture and heritage departments to host the SA-EU Community Arts Centres (CAC) Dialogues on 02 – 03 March 2020 and 05 and 06 March 2020. The dialogues will be held at The Athenaeum in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape and KCAP in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Funded by the SA-EU Strategic Partnership, the Sibikwa Arts Centre will lead the dialogue to facilitate sectoral discussions between Irish, Flemish, and French institutions as well as South African Community Arts Centre’s to increase institutional capacity, policy implementation and share best practices.

Community art centre’s support youth empowerment, social cohesion, and nation-building, therefore, the Revised White Paper on Arts, Culture and Heritage encourage municipalities to obtain coherent cooperation and develop a strong network amongst each other.

The involvement of the international institutions will then ensure the promotion of mutual understanding, cooperation and respect across borders.

Furthermore, SALGA and COGTA’s presence warrants a good system of governance which will contribute significantly to the successful implementation of the National CAC Policy in municipalities. In this regard, topics will be connected to Back-to-Basics, the Integrated Urban Development Framework, as well as Culture 2021 as list of actions adopted during the UCLG Summit in Bilbao in March 2015.

Key to the dialogue is a shift away from primarily thinking about community arts centres as an infrastructural input and toward thinking about a centre more rigorously in terms of its outputs.

Expected to attend are master’s students from the WITS University who took part in the previous dialogue as part of their course, they will now participate as Junior Key Experts. Moreover, delegates from the European Union; Community Art Centre representatives; Deputy Minister of DCOG, provincial government representatives; municipal officials as well as policy specialists are also expected to attend.
