Western Cape Cultural Commission Purpose and Functions



The Western Cape Cultural Commission (WCCC) is a statutory body that advises the Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport on the preservation, promotion and development of arts and culture in the communities it represents. The commission members are nominated by the public and appointed by the Minister.

The Commission consists of three committees, with the chairperson of each constituting the Executive Committee. Cultural Councils and Facilities are the two committees of the WCCC. In addition to committee meetings, plenary sessions are held.


The committees of the WCCC work towards the services required of their respective portfolios:

  • The Cultural Councils Committee considers matters of policy, applications from the cultural councils and co-ordinates these registered cultural councils.
  • The Facilties Committee guides the annual tariff review and matters of facility maintenance.
