ACT presents master classes in the Eastern Cape

Eastern Cape organisations are invited to apply to participate in upcoming arts administration master classes.

The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT), in partnership with the National Lotteries Commission (NLC), invite arts organisations, and small and medium creative enterprises based in the Eastern Cape to participate in their 2017 arts administration master classes.

The classes, which will be presented through ACT’s Building Blocks Programme, will increase the capacity and sustainability of South African arts and culture organisations, and creative enterprises by presenting the following four arts administration master classes in the Eastern Cape:

  • Marketing in the Arts
  • Leadership in the Arts
  • Governing Boards for Arts Organisations
  • Monitoring and Evaluation of Arts Projects

‘Through the Building Blocks Programme, ACT contributes to and strengthens local organisations through cultural planning, technical assistance, master classes, mentorship and other developmental efforts. We’re pleased to partner with the National Lotteries Commission to contribute to the development and capacity building and sustainability of the South African arts and culture sector,’ says Pieter Jacobs, Chief Executive Officer of ACT.

Successful arts and culture organisations, and small and medium creative enterprises will be required to send one representative to attend each of the master classes. This can be one individual who will attend all four classes, or four different individuals who will attend the master class most suited to their role within the organisation.

Following the master classes, the trainers will select a handful of organisations which they will mentor. This mentoring aspect entails a five-month engagement with the trainers, which will ensure long-term impact and sustainability of the selected beneficiaries.

Selected organisations will receive arts administration training and mentorship to the value of R 30,000 per organisation. It is important to note that participating organisations based 100kms or more from Port Elizabeth will receive a R 1,000 travel stipend per master class and R 500 per mentoring session. Any further travel, food and/or accommodation costs will have to be subsidised by the organisation.
