MILLIONS INJECTED INTO FUNDING ARTS & CULTURE ORGANISATIONS AND SPORT FEDERATIONS
The MEC for Arts, Culture, Sport and Recreation, Mrs Bongiwe Sithole-Moloi, will on Friday announce and hand over grants-in-aid funding to arts and sport non-profit organisations that are supported by the two departments she heads. The hand over function will be held in Durban on the 12th April 2019.
The beneficiaries include sport federations, recreation bodies, academies and organisations promoting the development of arts and culture.
Funding the non-profit organisations remains central in the development of arts, culture, and sport so that their contribution to these disciplines is sustainable. Besides development, the spin-off of funding these organisations is job creation as supporting them offers social stability and economic growth for the creative arts industry and sporting fraternity, especially in rural communities.
This funding project is aligned with the Provincial Growth and Development Plan and focuses on enhancing social cohesion and nation-building as well as contributing to the health and wellbeing of the Province’s citizens.
