1 Mzansi’s Golden Economy Contribution of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Sector to the New Growth Path Department of Arts and Culture

2 Objectives  Project initiated at the request of the Minister to reposition the arts, culture and heritage sector as an economic growth sector and introduce programmes to contribute to large scale employment  The creative and cultural industries included as a priority sector for implementation of the new growth path; 1

3 New Growth Path  Government commitment envisages the creation of 5 million jobs over the next ten years  Identifying areas where employment creation is possible on a large scale as a result of substantial changes in conditions in South Africa and globally.  Developing a policy package to facilitate employment creation in these areas, above all through: A comprehensive drive to enhance both social equity and competitiveness Systemic changes to mobilise domestic investment around activities that can create sustainable employment Strong social dialogue to focus all stakeholders on encouraging growth in employment-creating activities 2

4 Proposed approach  General continuity and introduction of new initiatives, as far as possible building on and expanding existing initiatives  Skills development for excellence / high performance in the arts, culture and heritage sector  Large scale interventions aimed to optimise growth and employment potential of the sector  Expansion and co-ordination of supply and demand in the sector  Enhancement of existing production and creation of new business opportunities to match demand  Monitoring and evaluation to guide investment and co- ordination of current and future resources for the sector 3

5 Problem statement - Advocacy  Sector is not visible and regarded as a nice to have  Implicit and explicit messaging from government that priorities are maths and science, technology and engineering  Consequence of progressive removal of the arts from the curriculum is failure to identify and develop talent, failure to develop appreciation and future audiences 4

6 Problem statement - research  Considerable research by DAC, DAC Entities, Provinces and other role-players  Duplication and overlaps in research  Different methodologies and models resulting in lack of ability to assess trends in qualitative research and analyze time series data in quantitative research 5

7 Problem statement – institutional arrangements  Proliferation of role-players in government resulting in overlapping functions  Fragmentation and duplication of efforts between DAC, DAC Entities, Provinces, Provincial Agencies  Views articulated that the agencies are responsible for implementation and DAC responsible for oversight  Lack of clarity in roles and responsibilities of national departments  Submission of Provinces that initiatives of DAC result in unfunded mandates  Insufficient communication and co-ordination of different role players to ensure optimal performance 6

8 Problem statement - programmes  Role clarification required between DAC and DAC emtities  Submission of Provinces that Community Arts Centres are not adequately resourced and functional  Submission of Provinces that Investing in Culture Programme commitments did not materialise 7

9 Problem statement - Infrastructure  Unutilised and underutilised infrastructure throughout the country  Inadequate resources for maintenance and operation of existing infrastructure 8

10 Problem statement - Funding  Submission by all role players that there are funding challenges  No apparent alignment in disbursement of Lottery funds with policy and plans of the sector  Ad hoc funding of requests to DAC and submission that in certain instances projects funded fall within the mandate of an agency 9

11 Position statement  Global evidence that countries with a high degree of social cohesion experience economic growth  Arts, culture and heritage are crucial factors for social cohesion  The arts, culture and heritage economy has the potential to contribute significantly to job creation and economic growth And:  Heritage and culture have intrinsic and intangible value in contributing to social development 10

12 Cultural statistics  Cultural statistics inform future decision making and allows global comparability  It is proposed that a uniform framework be adopted and that the framework serve as an informing factor for organisational structure 11

13 Intervention model  A simple model is proposed to ensure that interventions in the sector are systematically planned in all stages of the cycle of creation, production, dissemination, presentation and consumption PRODUCTION DISSEMINATION EXHIBITION, RECEPTION, TRANSMISSION CONSUMPTION / PARTICIPATION CREATION 12

14 Conference commitment Establishment of multi-stakeholder project task teams, appointed by the Minister, building on existing initiatives, working through existing institutions, to complete detailed plans for implementation, with financial and human resource implications for a variety of strategic programmes. 13

16 Principles guiding project teams Recognising, building on, expanding and scaling-up significantly existing initiatives Identification of talent and skills development Large scale, high impact programmes maximizing growth and employment potential of the sector Expansion and co-ordination of supply and demand Enhancement of existing production and creation of new business opportunities to match demand Monitoring and evaluation to guide future decision making 15
