SA HANDBOOK ON ARTS AND CULTURE (article first published : 2002-04-22)

The long-awaited second edition of the South African Handbook on Arts and Culture was launched on April 18 at the Johannesburg Civic Theatre. First published by Article 27 Arts and Culture Consultants in 1998 with the generous assistance of Nedbank, the Arts and Culture Trust and Business and Arts South Africa, the handbook is regarded by many as the most important and comprehensive source of information on arts and culture in post-1994 South Africa.

In response to numerous local and international requests for an updated version of the Handbook, Article 27 - with the outstanding support of the Swedish International Development Co-operation Agency (SIDA) and David Philip Publishers (now an imprint of New Africa Books) - has announced that the 2002/3 edition will be on the shelves of major bookstores at the end of April.

The South African Handbook on Arts and Culture is a one-stop directory of information about arts and culture which journalists, donors, practitioners, academics, researchers, policy-makers, cultural institutions, international agencies, government, networks and all those with an interest in local arts and culture will find invaluable.

Chapters include names and contact details for national and provincial funding agencies; private sector sponsors; foreign embassies in South Africa and South African embassies abroad. There are listings for various media and arts journalists; educational institutions; local and international arts festivals; awards and competitions; national, provincial and local government politicians. Other useful information details officials responsible for arts and culture; as well as chapters with contact details for important agencies in craft, dance, music, theatre, film, literature, visual arts, heritage, community art and cultural tourism.

The Handbook will be available in major bookshops such as Exclusive Books from the first week of May for R150. Alternatively, copies can be ordered from David Philip Publishers on e-mail: pamela.petersen@dpp.co.za
