Advocacy Workshops for Cape Town and Johannesburg

Advocacy Toolkit Workshops in 2014

Arterial Network South Africa (ANSA) invites applications to participate in one of its Advocacy toolkit workshops to be held on 10 -11 September 2014 in Cape Town and on 25-26 September 2014 in Johannesburg. The workshops form part of ANSA’s Civil Society Campaign funded with a generous grant from the International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD).
Overview of Workshops.
Our focus is on strengthening the capacity of organisations in the sector to advocate for issues of concern to them. These issues may include better funding policies, lobbying policymakers on specific issues, lobbying decision-makers for a specific project, challenging the abuse of power or alerting the public to issues affecting artists, creative’s, curators or others working in the sector. 

We believe that stronger organisations can better represent the interests of people working in the sector and challenge policymakers to address the needs of artists and creative’s making it happen on the ground.

Moreover, strong member bodies can help build much-needed consensus across sub sectors of the arts, culture and heritage sector in order to be a credible partner to government and business in meeting the cultural development challenges in South Africa.


We want to develop the capability (knowledge, skills, and behaviors) within the artistic environment required to achieve Arterials Network South Africa’s priorities now and in the future and to encourage individuals and organisations to become proactive leaders in the industry.

We invite applications from emerging leaders in organisations active in structures who are interested to build the case for their creative sector.
If you are interested to participate please submit:

1) a letter of motivation indicating how you wish to help build the capacity of organisations in your field or area.

2) a CV with two contactable references.

Since workshop places are limited, if you have not been contacted by 30 August 2014, please consider that your application was not successful.
