Call for Comment: Draft Cultural Policy

13 March 2005
The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport is currently busy with a cultural transformation process. One of the main objectives is to develop a cultural policy. The development of a cultural policy will contribute to efficient and effective service delivery and is also in line with the vision of the Cabinet to make the Western Cape a home for all.

The last mentioned is a follow up on a cultural transformation indaba, which took place in Cape Town during August 2004 which aimed at providing a platform for interactive debate in order to start the process of cultural transformation. Recently during 2005 stakeholders of Cultural Affairs in the rural areas were presented with a preliminary draft cultural policy at workshops with the aim of obtaining their input.

All role players in the fields of arts, culture, heritage, language, libraries and museums are invited to visit to download and print the preliminary draft cultural policy.

Hard copies are available from the:

Cape Gateway Walk-in Centre
142 Long Street
Cape Town.
