The Sibikwa Arts Centre wishes to apologise for the silence on the Shukuma Mzansi! SA-EU Community Arts Centres Dialogue III with focus on ‘Implementing the National CAC policy in Municipalities’.
We were faced with an unexpected challenge, a delay in the releasing of grant funding, which has had a severe impact on the logistical component of the planning and execution of this SA-EU CAC Dialogue.
After extensive conferring with the DAC and EUD we had to come to the decision that it will not be possible to deliver a high-quality conference on the announced dates at this time.
The project will take place. The SA-EU CAC Dialogues will be held during the last week of February 2020; we will announce the exact dates as soon as we have (re-)secured the SA and EU experts.
Prospective SA delegates, please note that you do not need to reapply; the application submitted by you earlier will not expire and will be reassessed; thereafter all successful applicants will be contacted. We envisage this process to take place before 15 December 2019.
We thank all our EU and SA partners, experts and delegates for their patience and apologise for any inconvenience caused while trusting we will together ensure an effective SA-EU CAC Dialogue.
This initiative is funded by the SA-EU Strategic Partnership – the Dialogue Facility which contributes to the strengthening of relations between the European Union and South Africa and encourages cooperation between equal partners in a number of areas in the economic, social and cultural fields; and co-funded by the Department of Arts & Culture.
