Krumbock, Mr GR to ask the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture

Whether, with reference to his reply to question 954 on 8 June 2020, the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) received a copy of the Pullinger Report; if not, why not; if so, (a) on what date did SASCOC consider the specified report and (b) what findings were (i) implemented and (ii) not implemented?

Reply:

The South African Sport Confederation and Olympic Committee in its response indicated the following;

1(a) SASCOC appointed Advocate Pullinger in October 2012 and the copy of the Pullinger Report was received on 10 July 2015.

2(b)(i) (ii) Findings and recommendations were not implemented as the organisation had to first follow its Dispute Resolution Mechanism process by engaging all parties involved. SASCOC provided the report to the concerned National Federation and tried to mediate for an amicable way forward which did not materialise. The dispute was then referred to the Department of Sport and Recreation South Africa for guidance and intervention as per the Sport Act. Subsequent to the release of the Ministerial Inquiry report and the listed recommendations, SASCOC had to consider the recommendations and agree with the Minister about the implementation of the report. One of the recommendations listed was the Pullinger Report which SASCOC had to reconsider. SASCOC then had a meeting with the Department and in particular to this matter, it was clear after the engagements that this dispute needed to go back to SASCOC to resolve because it’s the organisation that appointed the Advocate to investigate the matter and provide recommendation to the Board after a number of remedies were considered in addressing the dispute. This is one of the recommendations being attended to through the Compliance Task Team.

Madlingozi, Mr BS to ask the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture

Whether, in view of the sit-in by two South African artists at the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (SAMRO) on 19 and 20 February 2021 to highlight the alleged thievery and mismanagement of the money of especially black South African musicians by unscrupulous collecting societies, his department has taken any steps to deal with the alleged theft of monies belonging to artists by SAMRO; if not, why not, if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. The issue of mismanagement of royalties by collecting societies has been in the public domain for quite some time and recommendations were made for government to enact strong legislations that will compel all societies to properly account to their members and to government. The current situation is that only needle-time collecting societies are required to account not only to their members but also to the Companies & Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) on how they distribute royalties collected. Unfortunately, SAMRO does form part of these collecting societies, as it does not collect for needle time. The current process of amending the Copyright Act is aimed at, inter alia, providing a comprehensive approach towards addressing these issues. As a matter of facts, the proposed pieces of legislation (Copyright reformed legislation makes provision that all collecting societies are legally obliged to properly account to both their members and to the CIPC. We believe that the once the Bills which are currently in Parliament for further review are enacted, the situation will surely improve.

While the above process is unfolding, it is possible for members of the collecting societies to use other avenues such as the provisions that are in the Companies Act of 2008 to ensure that the Directors of these companies are held accountable for proper management of the company. Based on the provision of the Act, members can also submit their complaints to the CIPC on matters relating any alleged breach of fiduciary duties.

Despite all this, and noting the obligation that we have as a Department which demands that we protect our artists, the office of the DG has met with the management of all the collecting societies on 2 March 2021, this include SAMRO. There are a number of issues that were discussed, including the increase and usage of modern technology to management royalty collection and distribution; frequent distributions of royalties to ensure that artists access their income as soon as possible; commitment on the tracking and tracing system for unclaimed royalties - using various media platforms to reach out to those whom their royalties remained unclaimed. Of great importance, we have also agreed on the development and creation of government and corporate partnership programs to educate artists and the heirs about their works as managed by these collecting societies, this having noted that most of the artists are not aware of who exactly collects for what in all applicable musical rights. The actual plans surrounding the partnership programs will be unveiled as soon as the details become available.

What (a) are the relevant details of his department’s plan for distributing the relief grant to artists and (b) have been the major stumbling blocks towards ensuring that the relief grant reaches as many artists as possible?

Reply:

A). The department had reprioritized funds and set aside R150 million towards relief efforts for arts practitioners. The disbursement of these funds was implemented through calls for applications. To date, three phases of call outs have been made, with the third one still in process. It is anticipated that no less than 9000 artists would have benefitted from the interventions.

b). The challenges experienced have mainly centred around verification of applicants by different state structures that are offering similar benefits in order to avoid double dipping to ensure the limited funds reach as many beneficiaries as possible.

Project Name : COURTYARD PROJECT

Public Entity : IZIKO SOUTH AFRICAN MUSEUM

Location : The Company Gardens, Queen Victoria Street, Cape Town, Western Cape.

The Museum building complex is sited within the Company Gardens and comprises several interlinked buildings which range from the historically significant, main entrance building, (Block A), through the various infill additions and extensions to the early 1980’s, heavily serviced, late brutalist Courtyard Building, (Block C).

Work under this contract extends throughout this complex and involves specialised heritage work in the oldest building on the entrance side, incorporates work to some of the earlier interlinking buildings previously altered and extended, includes work to the high ceilinged Whale Well. The work focusses mainly on the mountain side Courtyard Building (Block C) which is extensively updated, upgraded, structurally strengthened and extended with construction of five floors on piled foundations within the internal courtyard carrying new sixth and seventh floors which cantilever over the original building.

Project Description, scope and objectives:

The project was undertaken to increase the research collections’ storage capacity, to update safety services and to expand the visitor experience.

Alterations and additions were undertaken to update, extend and complement existing museum facilities, including those for the receiving, preparation, research, safe keeping, conservation and select display of scientific natural history specimens. Considerable additional specialized protected storage has been provided, much with close climate control. Also provided are new education and conference facilities, laboratories and management facilities. All services within Blocks C and D have been updated and fire safety in particular has been significantly improved with the range of fire suppression systems implemented including water, foam and inert gas systems. Electronic access control, monitoring and low UV energy efficient lighting is provided.

Work comprised alterations and restoration of various areas within the historic buildings (comprising Blocks A and B) of the Museum Complex; installation of digital display lighting and construction of a new plant room at roof level within the Whale Well (Block B); stripping, alterations and extensive reconstruction of the 1980’s research and collection building, (Block C) and the construction within its courtyard of a new five storey infill structure on extensive piled foundations.

This infill structure supports the new sixth floor which cantilevers over the existing building and houses a multi-purpose, sub-divisible conference facility with breakaway and entertainment areas and a full catering kitchen. Above this the new top, seventh floor accommodates meeting rooms and the executive offices of the eleven national museums in Cape Town, Iziko Museums of South Africa.

Block D, (the building with its two courtyards, which link Block C and the Planetarium) is extensively reconfigured for education facilities and offices, with one light well repurposed as a usable, planted courtyard and the other courtyard roofed, provided with Amphitheatre style seating and integrated with the adjacent classrooms and meeting areas.

New fire protection services installed as part of the works include fail-safe pumped water storage, gas, foam and sprinkler fire suppression systems; energy efficient reverse-cycle heating, ventilation and air conditioning; interactive digital touch-screen displays, two new passenger lifts and a new goods lift; computerised bio-metric access control, digital security cameras, a stand by generator and new electrical, security and alarm infrastructure. Low energy consumption lighting with minimal damaging ultra-violet light output has been installed.

Facilities includes:

  • specialised storage and conservation facilities for specimens preserved in volatile, flammable and hazardous substances which make extensive use of mobile racking to maximise efficiency, and
  • specialised, separate safe marine mammal and terrestrial vertebrates wet dissection areas with purpose made tables incorporating down draft extraction for health and safety reasons, served by a travelling mono-rail crane which links to new cold and freezer rooms, the high hazard tank storage facility and vehicle loading docks,
  • the fossil specimen preparation laboratory,
  • taxidermy, maceration and specimen preparation areas,
  • workshop, display preparation, spray-room and associated design facilities,
  • conference facilities, breakaway rooms, catering facilities and support functions,
  • education facilities and classrooms, including roofing and internalising a courtyard for teaching purposes,
  • removal of redundant facilities and structure to provide additional display and teaching facilities in Blocks A and B,
  • the executive, finance and administration offices,
  • the research and special collections library,
  • the bio-diversity teaching and demonstration laboratory,
  • scanning electric microscope room and digital X-ray room.

Inert gas, foam or water fire suppression systems, appropriate to the various collections protect these areas and two on-site water storage tanks on piled foundations with autonomous pumps ensure adequate supply, independent of external power or water to separate fire hydrant, hose reel and sprinkler systems. Ground water has been tapped for reticulated for irrigation purposes.

(b). The project was approved on the 20th May 2005 (as per Procurement Instruction document)

(c). The budget allocated was R 339 303 043.19

(d). The work needed to be done was specialised storage and the other facilities noted above were required, obsolete infrastructure and services needed to be updated, fire and general safety and security improved and the structure of the building strengthened as this was showing stress cracks and signs of overloading before any new facilities were added. Some inappropriate modifications to the buildings needed to be removed, original spaces reinstated and their building fabric restored.

Inadequate fire suppression systems in Blocks C and D needed upgrading and replacement with energy efficient systems.

(e). The Original Practical Completion Date was 30 June 2014

Contract Commencement Date and duration: 29 June 2012. (24 months) Site Handover Date: 14 January 2013 (Award delayed due to adjudication process & non-availability of site).

(f). The total amount that has been spent including professional fees is R 319 403 705, 55

2.(a). The project/works reached the stage of practical completion in terms of the building contract on 14 August 2020 when the last few areas of the works were handed over to the User Department. The contractor is currently attending to snags prior to achievement of the contractual stage of Works Completion, anticipated to be achieved by end March 2021 with Final Completion early in July 2021.

(b). Yes, it is currently in use

(1). With reference to the Iziko Museum, on what date (a) will the electrical and other problems of the Old Town House be fixed and (b) will the building be reopened to the public; (2).(a). who is the person responsible for maintenance of the specified house and (b) what are the reasons that it has not been done; (3). whether there is a timeline to finish the upgrading; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1)(a). The Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (DPWI) is the custodian in terms of section 4 of the Government Immovable Asset Management Act (GIAMA), 2007 (Act no. 19 of 2007 and in terms of the Day to Day Maintenance Guidelines must pay “for services which falls within the scope of the Day to Day Maintenance Services obliged for an amount exceeding R100 000”, this amount was previously R30 000.

In terms of GIAMA, the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture (DSAC) is the user and is required to fund day to day maintenance of R100 000 and less for buildings, including Iziko Old Townhouse (IOTH), occupied by Iziko Museums, one of its public entities. So when there were two electrical fires at IOTH that caused the closure of the building, Iziko Museums immediately attended to the repairs required which amounted to about R55 000.00 and due to the age of the building also commissioned an Architect to inspect and estimate the scope of work further electrical work required. The assessment was that the electrical wiring needed to be replaced as it was a fire hazard. DPWI was informed accordingly.

An Architect with heritage experience was appointed to manage the repair and maintenance project to address safety issues to ensure that the IOTH infrastructure is compliant with health and safety requirements.

(b). The building will be reopened to the public once the building has been declared compliant in terms of health and safety requirements.

2(a). As indicated in paragraph (1)(a) above, the Minister of the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (DPWI) has been appointed as the custodian of the immovable assets which vest in the national sphere of government and is thus the caretaker of the state-owned building IOTH in terms of GIAMA. In terms of the Day to Day Maintenance Guidelines, DPWI is responsible for all work exceeding R100 000 and as the user, DSAC is responsible for all work costing R100 000 and the Department has delegated this responsibility to Iziko Museums.

(b). This work exceeds R100 000, so this question should be posed to the Minister of the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (DPWI) who is appointed as custodian of state-owned buildings and, in terms of GIAMA section 4(2), is the caretaker of state-owned buildings such as the IOTH and thus responsible for repairs and maintenance of R100 000 and more and specifically those projects related to health and safety.

(3). As indicated in paragraph (1)(a) above, the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture is not the custodian of state-owned buildings and as user is only required to fund repairs and maintenance projects of R100 000 and below, but DSAC has nevertheless previously allocated R9.51million to develop a five-year Conservation and Maintenance Plan for the nine state-owned buildings occupied by Iziko Museums so Architects developed the following documents for each of the nine buildings:

  • As-Built Drawings;
  • An Existing Building Condition Report;
  • A Conservation Management Plan; and
  • A five-year Conservation and Maintenance Plan.

In terms of the South African National Heritage Resources Act, 1999 (Act No. 25 of 1999), all heritage buildings must be managed in terms of a Conservation and Maintenance Plan (CMP) to protect the heritage resource. The CMP for the nine buildings submitted to the provincial authority Heritage Western Cape (HWC) for approval, but only eight were approved as the CMP for one building had been mislaid.

Although not required, DSAC also allocated R1 509 248, 00 for the repair and maintenance of buildings occupied by Iziko Museums. A Project Manager with architectural and heritage experience was appointed and applications for repair and renovation permits were submitted to HWC in terms of the South African National Heritage Resources Act, 1999 (Act No. 25 of 1999).

A project implementation plan was developed and the project brief for the tender to appoint a Contractor to carry out repair and renovation, including painting services, at IOTH and other buildings occupied by Iziko. The Contractor for the repair and renovation and painting services for buildings occupied by Iziko Museums, including IOTH, will be appointed by 30 April 2021.

As DPWI did not allocate funding for this health and safety project, DSAC also allocated the amount of R4 395 212 for the electrical wiring that must be replaced at IOTH as it was a fire hazard.

Although HWC had approved a permit for repair and maintenance as well as the CMP for IOTH, Iziko Museums was informed that a further permit application is required for the electrical repairs. The tender documentation to appoint a Contractor to do the electrical repairs has been prepared, but it cannot be advertised until the permit approval is received as there might be further stipulations from HWC that would need to be incorporated in the scope of work, as was the case with the permit applications for painting the buildings.

HWC issued permits for the repair and renovation of IOTH as well as other buildings occupied by Iziko more than a year after Iziko Museums had submitted the applications, so timelines are dependent on how long HWC will take to issue a permit for electrical work to be carried out at IOTH.

Whether any (a) sports teams and/or (b) individuals participating in the Tokyo Olympic Games will have to pay fully and/or partially for the cost to participate in the games; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (i) to which teams and/or athletes does this pertain, (ii) what number of persons are affected, (iii) what are the reasons that the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee will not be covering the full cost for each team and/or individual to participate and (iv) what is the breakdown of the costs for each team and/or individual, including (aa) flights, (bb) accommodation and (cc) any other specified costs? NW331

Reply:

The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee in its response indicated the following;

a). No, sports teams and/or individuals as members of Team South Africa participating in the Tokyo Olympic Games will not have to pay fully and/or partially for the cost to participate in the games.

(i)(ii).The position in this regard is that the SASCOC mandate is to deliver Team South Africa to multi-coded games and therefore funding must be sourced to cover the cost for Team delivery. SASCOC is working hard to secure the necessary funding to deliver the team to Tokyo.

(iii). However, if SASCOC is not successful in raising all the required funding to deliver the team to Tokyo the SASCOC General Assembly, at its AGM on 23 November 2019 resolved that should SASCOC not raise all the required funding, the participating National Federations will raise the necessary funding to assist SASCOC to deliver Team South Africa to Tokyo.

(iv). The budget is being reworked based on sponsors being signed and other potential funders so a cost per team member should be available mid-March 2021.

(a). SASCOC will only know the final number of officials once all athletes and teams have qualified.

(b). The names and positions of the officials will only be known by mid-June 2021 at final team announcement.

(c). All countries receive a travel grant from Tokyo to cover all team members (athletes and officials). All team members stay at an Athlete Games Village at no cost. This includes full board and lodging.

2). Athletes will not be subsiding any official that is part of Team SA. Officials are part of Team South Africa as part of support to the athletes. As per IOC/IF Guidelines all teams, need support of management, coaches and medical to enable athletes to focus on their optimal performance.

The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee provided the tables below illustrating the breakdown of athletes and officials.

With reference to the name changes of Port Elizabeth to Gqeberha, King William’s Town to Qonce, Uitenhage to Kariega and MaClear Town to Nqanqarhu, what (a) total number of representations and/or comments were received by (i) the Geographical Name Change Committee tasked with the name change process and (ii) his Office following the advertisements of the name changes as required by legislation during the different stages of the process, (b) number of the specified comments were (i) in favour of and (ii) against the specified changes and (c) are the reasons that the comments against the name changes were not taken into account?

Reply:

(1) The Eastern Cape Provincial Geographical Names Committee conducted public hearings as followings:

  1. Raymond Mhlaba Sport Centre on 13 November 2018
  2. Port Elizabeth City Hall 14 November 2018
  3. Uitenhage Town Hall 20 November 2018
  4. Chatty Community Hall 21 November 2018
  5. Nangoza Jebe Hall 22 November 2018
  6. Maclear Town Hall 27 February 2019
  7. King Williamstown Town Hall 19 November 2019
  8. Berlin Town Hall 21 November 2019
  9. East London City Hall 26 November 2019.

During these public consultations the name Nelson Mandela and Bhayi were also proposed for Port Elizabeth. However, the name Bhayi was disqualified as it was argued that it was just a translation of the word Baai. The name Nelson Mandela was disqualified as it was argued that it was overused in South Africa and the President Mandela never resided in the city. The counting of objections was never carried out as the sessions were not treated as referenda.

(1 and 11) The department has received twelve objections at the time this reply was being written from the public following the gazetting of the name changes on the 22nd of February 2021.

(b) on the number of comments for and against the name change. Section 10 of the South African Geographical Names Act 118 of 1998 provides for objections to the gazetted names but not for those who support the name changes hence no details of those who support the name changes were collected.

(c) As stated above the reasons given for the disqualification of the name Nelson Mandela was that the name was overused in South Africa and that President Mandela never lived in Port Elizabeth. The name Bhayi was disqualified because it was argued that the name Bhayi is a translation of the Afrikaans word Baai referring to any bay.

The Minister in conjunction with the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee is engaging Basketball SA to solve the problems bedevilling the sport in order to place in an acceptable administrative position.

2). The Department has not transferred any funds to Basketball SA since 2016. This recognizing that the organization was non-compliant with the minimum requirements for receiving Government Grant.

1. Given his decision to remove retired judge Zak Yacoob as Chairperson of the interim board of Cricket South Africa, what reasons motivated him to appoint Dr Stavros Nicolaou as his replacement; 2. what expertise has he found will Dr Nicolaou bring to his department, after he has been appointed for a third term by the President of the Republic, Mr M C Ramaphosa, to the board of Brand South Africa, and appointed by the Minister of Public Enterprises as Chairman of the Board of SA Express

Reply:

1. In appointing Dr Stavros Nicolaou as a replacement for Judge Zak Yacoob to chair the Cricket SA Interim Board, the Minister took the following facts into consideration, amongst others: -

  • A replacement coming from Interim Board, for continuity purposes
  • business acumen of the incumbent
  • interpersonal skills
  • his active supportive role when Judge Yacoob was still the Chairperson.
  • His acumen in Corporate governance issues was an added advantage.

2. Dr Stavros Nicolaou will be replacing Judge Yacoob for the balance of the Cricket SA Interim Board tenure, which is April 2021. Dr Nicolaou was considered for his business knowledge and experience gained in public entities like Brand SA, Public Enterprise and SA Express as the kind of skills the Interim Board would benefit from in discharging their public mandate. That has also assisted in ensuring that he hits the ground running as Interim Board Chairperson.

What are details of (a) the persons who are responsible for maintenance and upgrading of all infrastructure and (b) maintenance and upgrading that has been done on each of the buildings under the care of Iziko?

Reply:

1.(a). In terms of Section 4 of the Government Immovable Asset Management Act (GIAMA), 2007 (Act No. 19 of 2007) as amended, the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture (DSAC), the Executive Authority of Iziko Museums of South Africa (Iziko Museums), is the user of the following buildings that are occupied by Iziko Museums:

  • Bertram House and Bertram House Annexe, (early 19th century)
  • Bo-Kaap Museum (early 19th century)
  • Koopmans-de Wet House (18th century)
  • National Mutual Building (20th century) housing the Social History Centre
  • Old Town House (18th century) housing the Michaelis Collection
  • Rust en Vreugd Museum (late 18th century) and Rust en Vreugd Annexe

  • SA Museum (late 19th century) and Planetarium (20th century)
  • SA National Gallery (20th century) and SA National Gallery Annexe

The Minister of the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (DPWI) has been appointed as the custodian of immovable assets, which vest in the national sphere of government and is thus the caretaker of state-owned buildings in terms of GIAMA section 4(2) and will be able to provide the answer to this question.

In terms of paragraph 7 of the Guidelines for Day to Day Maintenance, DPWI as the custodian in terms of GIAMA section 4, will accept responsibility “for services which falls within the scope of the Day to Day Maintenance Services obliged for an amount exceeding R100 000”, previously this was an amount exceeding R30 000.

The subsidy received from DSAC includes funding for day-to-day maintenance services, so provision is made in the annual budget for the estimated expenditure in the annual budget.

The DSAC subsidy also includes funding to employ a Maintenance Coordinator to perform day-to-day repair and maintenance services.

The total estimated provision in the budget and the actual expenditure for day-to-day maintenance services for the past five years is indicated in the table below.

Repairs and Maintenance from 2016 to 2021

 

Budget

Actual

Day to day maintenance services

R 3 067 338

R 1 403 491

Total

R 3 067 338

R 1 403 491

It must be noted that the day to day projected budget for a financial year is an estimate so the fact that funding is not spent does not mean that Iziko has not been doing day to day maintenance, it means that it is simply not possible to accurately estimate what day to day maintenance would be needed at the nine sites occupied by Iziko so it is critical that sufficient funding is allocated.

(b). The table in paragraph (1) (a) includes the estimated expenditure allocated, as well as the actual expenditure in the past five years.

2.(a). The Minister of the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (DPWI) has been appointed as the custodian of immovable assets, which vest in the national sphere of government and is thus the caretaker in terms of GIAMA section 4(2) of state-owned buildings.

The Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture is the user, not the custodian, of buildings occupied by Iziko Museums as a public entity of DSAC in terms of Section 4(2) of GIAMA. DSAC has nevertheless allocated R9.51 million to Iziko Museums to appoint an Architect to develop a five-year Conservation and Maintenance Plan to assist with day to day maintenance services and to provide Iziko with an estimated cost of repair and renovation projects so that funding can be sought for projects as prioritised and costed in the Plan.

The following documents were developed for each of the nine buildings occupied by Iziko Museums:

  • As-Built Drawings;
  • An Existing Building Condition Report (EBCR);
  • A Conservation Management Plan (CMP); and
  • A five-year Conservation and Maintenance Plan.

The CMP for the nine buildings occupied by Iziko was submitted to Heritage Western Cape (HWC) for approval, but only eight were approved, as the CMP for Iziko SA National Gallery had been mislaid.

(b). Maintenance and Upgrade of Buildings by Custodian

The last time that the custodian of state-owned buildings allocated funding for major repairs and renovation of a building occupied by Iziko Museums was in 2005 for the Iziko SA Museum.

For many years, DPWI has been able to only fund health and safety related projects. The Halon Gas Fire Suppression System at the Iziko SA National Gallery was therefore replaced by DPWI.

DPWI will be able to provide the amount spent on the nine buildings occupied by Iziko Museums.

Maintenance and Upgrade of Buildings by User

DSAC and Iziko Museums have allocated funding for repair and maintenance projects, but it has been a challenge to spend the funding as Heritage Western Cape (HWC) has taken more than a year to issue permits and in some instances, additional documents such as plans are requested though construction is not planned.

DSAC has allocated funding for projects such as a the construction of an emergency escape, a fire suppression system, the painting of buildings, repair of a ceiling and the upgrade of the electricity supply at the Iziko Old Townhouse, which was the first building with electricity in Cape Town.

Iziko Museums has also managed to allocate some funds for repair and maintenance projects as indicated in the table below.

  1. Yes, The South African Cultural Observatory (SACO) undertook a study in the early stages of the lockdown, which was completed in May 2020, that include an online survey and an econometric analysis.

The Impact?

Approximately 600 completed surveys were received, and the survey distinguished between:

  1. formal (65%) and informal businesses (35%)
  2. employers (with employees) (38%) and freelancers (with no permanent employees)) 62%)
  3. those who operate mainly face-to-face (31%) and those who do not operate face-to-face (69%)

Formal sector operators seem to have experienced a higher proportion of cancellations of scheduled work than freelancers, possibly because of their longer-term planning horizons. Similarly, employers were more likely to have had scheduled work cancelled than freelancers. While those operating in a mostly not face-to-face mode initially experienced more cancellations (68%) than those operating mostly face-to-face, there were a greater proportion of face-to-face operations that experienced cancellations in future months.

Some respondents indicated that they were using the time productively to invest in the future of their businesses, which included:

  • Moving business activities, such as meetings and production, online (35%)
  • Arranging for greater flexibility to work from home (26%)
  • Agreeing with clients to postpone (but not cancel) work until a future date (34%)
  • Working on aspects of production (such as archiving, administration, developing creative ideas) that could be done without face-to-face interaction (36.5%)
  • Building up a stock of the goods we produce, to be sold at a later date (7%)
  • Using the time to up-skill or train myself and/or my employees (32%).

Less sustainable strategies involved short-term access to finance, which included:

  • Using up reserves or savings (40%)
  • Applying for a new loan, or an extension of a current loan (13%)
  • Getting support (money or other services) from friends and family (20.5%).

Other strategies being used were:

  • Moving business activities online, including production, distribution and sales, investing in skills, equipment and software that allows them to do this: “working on my website to strengthen my market image and presence”. There is, however, acknowledgement that online work limits access to poorer and rural communities.
  • General cost-cutting and reducing overheads wherever possible: “downscaling our business”
  • Diversifying into new or additional areas of business and exploring new markets: “Looking for new customers, and pivoting my business to add another income stream”.
  • Working on proposals and pitching new work to existing and new clients: “Trying to pitch work to existing clients which can be done online”.

Using an input output table developed to include the CCIs the average impact of the Covid-19 shutdown per domain for 2020 (Gross Domestic Product in billions of rand and percentage impact on the sector itself):

  • Cultural & Natural Heritage -R1,156 (-44,8%)
  • Performance & Celebration -R2,806 (-55,6%)
  • Visual Arts & Crafts -R2,173 (-44,5%)
  • Books and Press -R8,262 (-36,1%)
  • Audio-Visual & Interactive Media -R10,394 (44,7%)
  • Design & Creatives Services -R18,523 (-35,1%)

Two domains: the book and press and the designing creative services domains had the least impact and many authors and designers could continue working during Covid lockdown. On the other hand, the Performance and Celebration domain is most vulnerable (because of the high proportion of freelance and face-to-face production).

What, if anything were the positives?

Generally, the sector was forced to become more innovative in order to survive. One of the positive outcomes of the lockdown has been the increased use of information and communication technology (ICT). This has been particularly useful for enterprises and freelancers that have the equipment and the skills necessary to exploit these technologies. Unfortunately, many creatives, particularly in rural areas, could not access or use ICTs. Nevertheless, the use of these technologies has speeded up the 4th Industrial Revolution and will have positive consequences in the long-term for the South African creative economy. Creative are using the time to up-skill and acquired new skills.

With reference to his recent instruction that the SA Heritage Resources Agency should conduct the audit of all monuments and statues in the Republic, (a) what criteria will be used to make an assessment of the statues and monuments and (b) how will his department enable public participation in the process?

Reply:

(a). The criteria for assessment for individual monuments and memorials is necessary to establish their cultural significance and suitability to the current South African Context. SAHRA has created four broad categories of assessment namely: community desirability; historical, social and political value; artistic or aesthetic value; and environmental and spatial qualities.

Cultural significance, as based on the National Heritage Resources Act, 1999 (Act 25 of 1999.

(b). There is growing recognition that cultural heritage can benefit Nation Building and Social Cohesion, especially in the formation of personal or collective identities. Community participation then becomes an indispensable component of contemporary preservation practice.

The key focus beyond the materiality and desirability of the statue or memorial will be community participation. SAHRA will be following the legal prescripts as set out in the National Heritage Resources Act, 1999 (Act 25 of 1999) which ensures that meaningful participation take place during decision-making.

Furthermore, SAHRA will be making all decisions in consultation with the relevant Provincial Heritage Resources Authority, local authority and all interested parties.

Each athlete on the programme receives support towards coaching fees, tournament fees, medical and scientific support, attire and sport equipment.

These athletes are placed at the Sport Focus Schools in their respective Provinces where they receive sport specific support. Through this programme, the athletes receive support towards tuition, coaching, equipment basic subsistence costs.

There is also a Mass Participation and Sports Development programmes, wherein Provinces receives conditional grant to implement this programme in partnership with other stakeholders. The main objective is to provide access and exposure to all school going children and members within those communities. Norms and standards in partnership with stakeholders have been set.

Again there is Active Recreation Programme were the youth from different races participate in National Youth Camps which include indigenous games tournaments. The Department has also identified the Club Development Programme that promotes participation in sport activities as well as the identification of talent at grass roots level through the formalisation of sporting communities. A platform for the identification of talent is therefore generated, with emphasis on marginalised communities, providing the necessary mechanisms to channel talented individuals into mainstream sporting opportunities. Local leagues are supported by providing clubs with equipment has and or attire and Club coordinators are remunerated.

In response to the needs of youth living in rural and township areas, DSAC lobbied Parliament to ring-fence 5% of the Sport Infrastructure in the Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) to ensure that local sport infrastructure is catered for by the local municipality. The purpose of this intervention was precisely to respond to the needs of young people living in rural and township with talents and aspiration that need to be supported and nurtured by providing adequate sport facilities.

(b). In line with its performance indicator on provision of technical and managerial support to municipalities, the Department has a dedicated Infrastructure Support Unit that provides support to municipalities during implementation of these sport infrastructure projects, including monitoring and ensuring compliance with applicable Norms and Standards.
