  4. Vision We are a thriving arts, culture and heritage sector contributing to sustainable economic development, and leveraging on partnerships for a socially cohesive nation 4

  5. STRATEGIC GOALS • Development, protection, preservation and promotion of arts, culture and heritage • Job creation • Access to information • Entrenched linguistic diversity • Human Capital Development • Governance and accountability

  6. PROGRAMME DRIVERS • The programmes of the DAC are informed by a range of macro policy positions including: • The Freedom Charter • 2014 Election Manifesto • The National Development Plan (NDP) • The White Paper on Arts, Culture and Heritage, and related legislation • The Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF), and Outcome 14 in particular


  8. MAPPING STUDY • The 2013 Creative Industries Mapping study is the first national statistical benchmark of the South Africa creative economy. • The research was informed by the UNESCO Framework for Cultural Statistics to ensure that the information generated by the study would be comparable with the statistics generated elsewhere in the world. • The aim of the research was to determine the size and economic contribution of the creative industries in South Africa and identifying critical pressures and key trend

  9. MAPPING STUDY Market Profile • Over 70% of respondents in the study reported their primary source of income is own revenue generated from the sale of products and services • Over a third reported that they had received government grants - an indication of the ongoing importance of government financing of the sector. • The majority of organisations (66%) reported that their markets are locally based households and individuals • Only 18% of organisations reported that they exported their products.

  10. MAPPING STUDY Contribution to GDP • The creative economy contributed R90,5 billion directly to the country’s GDP in 2013/2014. • Relative to the total RSA GDP, the creative industries sector contributes 2.9% of GDP. This is similar to benchmark countries Chile and Australia but far below Brazil, for example. Employment • The creative economy accounted for a total number of 562,726 jobs in 2013/2014. • The design and creative services and cultural and natural heritage cluster have the largest employment impact, contributing a combined 54% to total employment. 10

  11. MAPPING STUDY Employment • Relative to employment in the whole of the South African economy, the creative economy contributes 3,6% of total employment. Supporting Women and Young People • Over 50% of enterprises in the sector are black-owned – of which fewer than 60% are owned by menand over 30% are owned by young people. • There is an almost equal split in employment between women and men and the majority of employees are black South Africans. • Furthermore, the sector provides significant opportunities for young people; the majority of employees are below the age of 35 11

  36. THE REPATRIATION PROGRAMME • Challenges • The Department has no national policy on repatriation. The repatriations have been undertaken on an ad hoc basis. Hence the Department has initiated the process of developing a national policy that will provide standardized guidelines on the repatriation of human remains. • The budget involved in repatriations is significant and as such there are serious budget constraints. 36

GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES PROGRAMME The South African Geographical Names Council is established through the South African Geographical Names Council Act (Act No 118 of 1998) In the 2014/15 financial year no new names were gazetted due to the late appointment of the SAGNC. Challenges Resistance to change which escalate to court cases challenging Minister’s decision. On 8 May 2014 the Pretoria High Court rule in favour of the Minister on Nelspruit to Mbombela name change and there is another outstanding matter on Louis Trichardt to Makhado name change. The Pretoria name change has been in the main stream in the media for the past ten years and was referred back to City of Tshwane Metro for public participation.   A lack of definition or clarity on public participation and consultation in relation to standardisation of geographical names. 37
