What is the department of Arts and Culture doing to safeguard unsuspecting rural families being exploited by television productions companies like the ISIBAYA telenovela producing company, which took pictures of the NDLOVU family house in MSINGA and gave the now deceased lady of the house R500 and use them to promote their television show? Are there any measures in place to protect these families? If not, why not?NW1929E

Reply:

There are many individual contracts between private parties that are not necessarily brought to the attention of the Department. However, government is currently in the process of changing the existing legislative regime to fight the exploitation of the creatives; and levelling the playing field.

These two pieces of legislation that are currently being reviewed are the Copyright Amendment Bill(CAB) and the Performers Protection Amendment Bill (PPAB). The Department of Sports, Arts and Culture is working with the Department of Communication and Digital Technologies; and the Department of Trade Industry in addressing this. The President has sent back these two pieces of legislation to Parliament for review. The DSAC is engaging the Department of Trade and Industry with the view to develop a joint approach moving forward, and the outcomes of the engagement will be announced very soon.

Reply:

1. (a). There is no central record of the total number of statues that have been erected in the Republic since 1994 because statues have been developed and installed by different national government departments, provincial, district and local governments, government entities and agencies, Trusts and Foundations. Statues the Department have developed directly, through its entities such as SAHRA and through grant funding for 63 statutes, including the development of 58 statues as part of the Long March to Freedom developed by the National Heritage Project Company,

(b). The Nelson Mandela Statue is installed at the apex between the right and left wings of the Union Buildings in Pretoria, Gauteng; the statue of Nkosi Albert Luthuli is at the Municipal offices of the KwaDukuza Local Municipality, KwaDukuza, KwaZulu-Natal; the Nelson Mandela statue is installed at the United Nations (UN) Headquarters building in New York, United States of America; NkosiBhambatha statue is in uMvoti Local Municipality Office in Greytown, KwaZulu-Natal, the statue of Robert Sobukwe is in GraafReinette and the statues of the Long March to Freedom names are attached as Annexure A and is currently installed at Century City in Cape Town;

(c). The Nelson Mandela Statue at the Union Buildings cost R8 million to build and is being maintained by the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure. The construction of the Nkosi Albert Luthuli statue amounted to R700 000and is part of the Luthuli Museum maintenance costs. The construction of the Nelson Mandela statue costed R1,1 million and is being maintained by the UN. The Bhambatha statue cost R890 000 to develop and is being maintained by the local municipality. The statue of Robert Sobukwe costed R1.8 million. The statues of the Long March to Freedom were funded with R28 million in 2013/2014, R15 million in 2015/2016, and R7 612 850, 00 was paid to the NHMC in 2018.

What (a) is the number of statues of (i) colonial and (ii) apartheid figures in the Republic, (b) is the exact location of each statue, (c) amount did it cost his department to (aa) maintain and (bb) safeguard the statues in each of the past five financial years and (d) are the formal requirements for removing statues?.

Reply:

There is currently (a) no complete consolidated number of statues of (i) colonial and (ii) apartheid figures in the Republic. The management of monuments, memorials and statues is the responsibility of Provincial Heritage Resources Authorities (PHRAs).

Only when the inventory of these resources is submitted to SAHRA by the PHRAs as heritage registers do they get incorporated into the heritage resources inventory on the South African Heritage Resources Information System (SAHRIS).

The table attached as annexure A provides the list of 24 heritage resources that are currently classified as monuments or memorials and listed on SAHRIS. This list is incomplete as PHRAs must still audit and do an inventory of statues in provinces and submit to SAHRA for incorporation into the national inventory.

(d) The formal requirements to remove or relocate a statue or monument are:

  • Completion of a permit application form for submission to the Provincial Heritage Resources Authority;
  • The Heritage Impact Assessment Report prepared by a qualified heritage practitioner or consultant must be attached as supporting documentation.
  • Such report should be based on solid research principles, including an assessment of the impact of the proposed removal/relocation, and if necessary, proposed mitigation measures.
  • A public consultation process of at least 30-days that may include, but is not limited to, the following:
  • Public Notices and advertisements that must be placed in National as well as local newspapers, indicating:
  1. the intention to move or remove the statue/monument; and
  2. contacting and inviting comments from interested and affected parties.
  3. preparation of a Conservation Management Plan
  4. presentation to the PHRA heritage permit committee meeting as may be required.

The committee then makes its findings based on the presentation of the processes above and may require further investigations. In the event that the applicant is not satisfied with the decision of the permit committee, they can appeal to the PHRA Council. Similarly, in the event that they are not satisfied with the decision of the PHRA Council, they can appeal to the Member of the Executive Council (MEC) in terms of Section 49 of the National Heritage resources Act, Act No. 25 of 1999. The MEC is by law required to appoint an Independent Tribunal comprising of experts to consider the matter and give a final recommendation.

The cost of this process is all borne by the applicant.

Whether he instructed the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) to payIndependent Music Performance Rights Association (IMPRA) monies to the amount of R10 million that were for legitimate needletime rights for musicians, as if the specified amount was for the Covid-19 relief fund; if not, (a) who ordered the SABC to pay IMPRA monies and (b) why?

Reply:

We have neither instructed the SABC nor any collecting societies, we have no legal authority to do as such.

You will understand that under normal circumstances royalties are being paid on a periodic basis. The decision by the SABC to provide an advance was therefore a positive response to close the gap for rights owners (this include record companies and performers) to get advance income. A public statement was issued onFriday, 08 May 2020by the three parties thus the SABC, SAMPRA and IMPRA regarding this matter. The statement is available on the SABC website and it provides full details.

Section A and B can best be responded to by SABC.

What number of applications has his Department (a) received and (b) approved for the (i) removal and/or (ii) relocation of a statue since the enactment of the National Heritage Resources Act, No 25 of 1999, on 28 April 1999. (NO 1726E)

Reply:

The Department does not receive or approve applications for the removal of statues. The National Heritage Resources Act, 1999, (Act No. 25 of 1999) provides for a three-tier heritage resource management system in which heritage resources of national significance are managed by the Department’s entity the South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA). Heritage resources of provincial significance are managed by Provincial Heritage Resource Authorities (PHRAs). Heritage of local significance are managed by local authorities. SAHRA would receive applications only if the resources were on a property that is declared as a national heritage site. The removal or relocation of statues would require the issuing of a permit by the relevant PHRA. SAHRA has only participated by commenting on applications made to PHRAs and local authorities.

.The Department through its entity SAHRA has therefore (a) not received any application and (b) not approved any application for the (i) removal and/or (ii) relocation of a statue since the enactment of the National Heritage Resources Act, No 25 of 1999, on 28 April 1999.

What amount was spent on the development of each specified sporting code by (a) the (i) SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee and (ii) SA Sporting Trust and (b) any other specified entity in each of the past three financial years?

Reply:

(i) In terms of the National Sport and Recreation Act and the National Sport and Recreation Plan the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee has as its primary focus High Performance of Sport, Preparation and Delivery of Team South Africa to multi-coded international events and secondly to serve as an umbrella body for sport in South Africa. SASCOC therefore does not necessarily develop sporting codes.

(ii) The Sports Trust was formed with its Vision and Mandate to provide sporting infrastructure, kit and equipment and programmes aimed at developing the young people of South Africa. The initiatives of the Trust are multi-coded in nature, this including the infrastructure projects which serve multi-sport. The Trust therefore does not develop individual sporting codes.

Reply:

REPORT ON THE BENCHMARKING VISIT TO THE UK UNDERTAKEN BY DAC AND THE SOUTH AFRICAN ROADIES ASSOCIATION ON TECHNICAL SERVICES FROM 24 FEBRUARY TO 01 MARCH 2019

DISCUSSION

The Minister approved that the DG lead a South African delegation on a benchmarking exercise on technical services to the United Kingdom (UK) from 24 February to 01 March 2019. Please find the report on benchmarking study below:

  1. The SA delegation was led by the Director General, Mr Vusumuzi Mkhize, and he was accompanied by the Director: International Relations, Mr John Mogashoa, and Deputy Director: Stakeholder Management in the DG’s Office and President of South Africa Roadies Association, Mr Freddie Nyathela.

Meeting with the British Council

2. The delegation met with the British Council to understand their mandate and work. The meeting was also to introduce the DG to the leadership of the British Council in the UK so as to encourage more collaborative work between the DAC and the British Council and solicit their support where necessary.

3. The Creative Cultural Industries (CCIs) is one of the key focus areas of the British Council. The Council view the CCIs as very critical in promoting economic opportunities and economic growth. The CCIs also addresses the unemployment of young people and promote entrepreneurship.

4. The delegation was informed that the British Council offices wherever they are based their focus on technical skills, mentoring, coaching and partnership. The SA delegation informed the British Council that SA is in the initial stages of planning to build an academy for the arts to train young people in particular in creative skills. The DAC and British Council agreed to continue to work together for possible partnership. The British Council also advised the SA delegation to engage closely with the British Council offices in SA and share areas of common interests for mutual support and partnership.

Meeting with the SA Embassy in the UK

5. The DG outlined the objective of the visit. The Embassy also appraised the DG on the status of relationship between SA and the UK in general and some of the work that is taking place in arts and culture.

6. Some of the issues that the Embassy is currently working on in partnership with the DAC and other partners in the UK are: the statue of O.R Tambo as part of the Heritage Liberation Route project and Edinburgh Festival. The O.R Tambo statue project is at various levels of development as it also involves the rehabilitation of a part of the city where it is installed.

7. The difficulty in finalising the OR Tambo statue is mainly due to the lack of funds to complete the project. The DG promised to look into the project and assist where possible to ensure completion. The Embassy also informed the DG that one of the key events in the UK is the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe Festival that takes place annually between July and August. The DAC involvement in the Festival has somewhat dwindled over the years. There is a need to find a creative way to maintain SA presence at the festival. Some of the ways are to have a stand at the festival to profile and support those South Africa artists who do find their own way to the festival in order to attract relevant decision makers to their event by way of hosting dinner and media engagements.

Meeting with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

8. The festival is the longest running festival in the world having been established in 1947. The festival is only second to the FIFA World Cup in global audience and participation. It receives some of its funding from the British Council and the UK government.

9. One of the most important aspects of the Fringe Festival is the Marketplace where people buy works of art, various programming of the festival takes place and new artists are profiled. The Festival also indicated to the delegation that a programme called “Stage for Life” is available for mentorship and training for technical services in the areas of stage management and technical skills. However the trainee must be partnered with a senior technical person from the festival. Most of this training happens on the lead up to the fringe festival as it offers on the job training in various aspect of the technical services.

10. The Fringe Festival has invited DG to visit the Fringe Festival this year. In return, the festival will develop a programme for the DG that would allow him to meet with the decision makers and to learn how the festival is put together and to understand further the “Stage of Life” training programme.

Meeting with the National Skills Academy

11. The National Skills Academy was set up the by City Council as the voice of the employers for skills and creative industry. The National Skills Academy also focuses on research skills gaps mostly in the backstage as a result of industry not linking with the education institutions. The academy also focuses on apprenticeship, apprenticeship standards and framework. Skills diversity and inclusion and working with EFT colleges and creative cultural industries. The academy also offers courses not only in backstage but offstage as well such as administration. The academy is employer/industry run. Employers form the Board of the academy, are active in course design in terms of their need, help in dealing with marketing and publicity and serve as brokers as well. It is an ever expanding network as more employers are getting more involved in the creative and technical skills training. The focus of the training is also self-employment as most of the jobs are not long term.

12. The National Skills Academy has committed to support and engage South Africa going forward in the development of SA Cultural and Creative Technical Skill Academy.

Meeting with the Backstage Academy

13. The Backstage Academy is nestled in the middle of the creative and technical services industry. The Backstage Academy is a privately funded institution that bridges the gap between industry and education, working closely with the various institutions, practitioners, professions and other partners. Industry partnership is an integral part of what Backstage Academy is all about. There are three core companies to the Backstage Academy, namely: Brilliant, Backstage Academy and Light Structure that makes up the Production Park which is the campus on which Backstage is based or built. The Backstage live events production is made up of Design, Event Management and Sound Engineering and the other aspect to Backstage Academy is Production Futures which is about the future of the industry.

14. The Backstage Academy has a target of 14-18 years old. Each year about 100 students graduate in various fields, study and roles. Key critical success factors or model strategies for Backstage Academy are content development, funding strategies and industry partnerships. Some of the entry requirements to study at Backstage Academy is not related to the academic achievements of students, but issues of attitude and love for the industry, willingness of students to work in local communities and volunteerism are attributes that are required.

Backstage has agreed to partner with South Africa for the development of the SA Cultural and Creative Skills Academy

Given the trend in some countries around the world to resume sporting activities without spectators, what is his department’s position regarding the implementation of the same in the Republic, especially with non-contact sport?

Reply:

The Regulations published in Government Gazette Notice No. 608 of 28 May 2020 made under section 27(2) of the Disaster Management Act, 2002 (Act No. 57 of 2002) has made provision for the easing of the lockdown to permit the return to play in the Sporting Sector at Level 3.

The Minister has consulted the sector and has received their proposed plans on the resumption of play.

As required by the regulations, the Minister has finalised directions and has submitted them to the relevant structures. Once approved, the directions will be signed by the Minister and gazetted for implementation by the sporting sector.

Mhlongo, Mr TW to ask the Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture

Whether, in light of the fact that the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) has endured several leadership and management scandals, and that a survey of most sports organisations allegedly shows negative sentiments towards SASCOC (details furnished), he has found that SASCOC is fulfilling the function it was set out to do; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The problems encountered by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee have been well documented with the solutions clearly articulated in the Zulman Committee of Enquiry Report.

It is evident that the effectiveness and efficiency of the SASCOC has consequently been adversely affected by the administrative lapses articulated in the report. A view which has been held by the Ministry upon acceptance of the Zulman Committee of Enquiry Report.

It is on this basis that the Department has invested its efforts in working with SASCOC with a view of turning around the fortunes of the organisation in order to set it on a sound administrative position geared towards effective delivery of its mandate and betterment of South African high performance sport and sport in general.

Whilst progress has been made in terms of the implementation of critical reforms within SASCOC due cognisance is given to the fact that the most critical milestone of the Quadrennial General Meeting is still outstanding. It is the Department’s conviction that this would usher in an era of stability for the organisation.
