Applications for arts and culture funding now open

Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) has announced the opening of online applications for arts and culture funding support.

Funding applications are open to registered arts and culture organisations and institutions, artist groups, individuals involved in artistic expressions and arts and culture events companies. Through this funding, DCAS is committed to supporting the growth of arts and culture in the province, and empowering talented artists to showcase their skills.

The Western Cape Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Anroux Marais, said, “I am happy that we can continue giving this support to our arts and culture organisations and individuals, despite the budget cuts that we are facing. Arts and culture organisations and artists capture the heritage, essence and unique flavour of the Western Cape and South Africa. It is crucial that we continue to support this important sector, which contributes to the growth of our local economy, brings social cohesion and creates jobs for many people.”

Application forms and criteria to qualify for funding are available here

Applications close on Friday, 8 March at 16:00.
