SA HANDBOOK (article first published : 2001-06-10)

Since the first edition of The South African Handbook on Arts and Culture published by Article 27 in 1998, there have been dramatic and far-reaching developments in the arts and culture sphere. Yet, one area that is still lacking is that of readily available arts and culture publications and resource books.

In response to numerous requests from both international and South African arts practitioners, agencies and organisations, an updated edition of The South African Handbook on Arts and Culture is currently being researched with the aid of the Swedish International Development Authority. Publication is planned for early November this year.

The multidisciplinary Handbook aims to record information from which to distil trends on the one hand and to provide the basic information to empower practitioners to raise funds, produce, market and distribute their work more effectively and to facilitate networking. The second edition plans to build on this.

In order to make the Handbook as good a resource as possible, all arts practitioners, cultural organisations, funders, administrators, arts supporters and interested parties are invited to contribute information for the various chapters. In particular, information is required on the international community such as cultural exchange opportunities; international festivals; international arts and culture publications as well as useful websites, media, marketing, advertising, publicity - arts and culture websites, publications, marketing and publicity companies.

Information is also required on advertising agencies, education - independent arts and culture institutions; bursaries and scholarships; arts education organisations; arts education websites and publications, calendar of regular arts and culture events, both local and internationally celebrated arts and culture days, competitions and awards for arts and culture, organisations, specific funding opportunities, initiatives, annual events, conferences and festivals, markets, books, websites and databases for chapters on each of the different disciplines: arts education, craft, dance, film and video, literature, music, theatre and musical theatre, visual arts, heritage, community art and cultural tourism.

Any other information which would be useful to peers or others working in the field of arts and culture would be welcome.
