SACO Survey - Cultural and Creative Sector Responses to COVID-19

To all Arts and Culture Enthusiasts!

The prevailing Coronavirus pandemic is anticipated to have quite a significant impact on the work of the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) and/or Arts, Culture and Heritage (ACH) sectors. To this end, the South African Cultural Observatory (SACO) has developed a Survey, from which it wishes to find out how the Covid-19 (widely known as the Coronavirus) is affecting the sector currently. Specifically, the interest is in hearing from firms (employers) and individual freelancers who work in any part of the cultural or creative sector, be it formal or informal.

Please help us not only make the individuals concerned aware of the survey, but attend to it, as this will enable for an in depth understanding of this pandemic on the CCIs and/or ACH sectors.

Also, in case you have already been engaged on the Survey, let this be a reminder, should you not have been able to do this.
