Minister Mbombo calls for nominations for Cultural Affairs Awards
On Wednesday, 11 September 2014, the Western Cape Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Dr. Nomafrench Mbombo, launched the 48 Hours poster for the department’s Cultural Affairs Awards. The Minister would like to encourage the people of the Western Cape to nominate their local culture heroes for these awards.
The awards are held annually to celebrate individuals and organisations in the Western Cape who are making a postive contribution in the Cultural Affairs sector. Awards have previously been given to organisations and individuals who have made a profound impact within the Arts, Culture, Language, Heritage, Museums, Archives, Geographical Names and Libraries sectors in the province over the years.
Nominations for the awards are now open. Members of the public who wish to nominate an individual or an organisation for an award, can obtain nomination forms via the department’s website at http://www.westerncape.gov.za/dept/cas.
The Cultural Affairs Awards ceremony will take place in February 2015.
