The Arts and Culture Trust (ACT) and UJ Arts & Culture invite submissions from Arts, Culture and Heritage practitioners and organisations, for inclusion in the second annual publication of the SA Arts & Culture Listing.

Published annually in conjunction with the ACT | UJ Arts & Culture Conference, this directory for the professional arts and culture community contains contact details and information on arts, culture and heritage organisations, facilities and related companies or institutions across South Africa, as an essential reference for all arts and culture professionals and stakeholders.

The updated SA Arts & Culture Listing will be made available in print as dedicated sections of the Conference programme and also online as a downloadable PDF on the ACT website. Arts industry stakeholders that are engaged in Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Music, Dance, Film and Photography, Heritage, Arts Training, Community Art, Literature and South African arts and culture Festivals and agencies that engage in sponsorship of arts, culture and heritage are strongly encouraged to submit their details for inclusion in the directory.
