CCIFSA and National Organisations follow-up meeting (Johannesburg)

Following an SA government decision that all South Africa’s creative and cultural sectors should be brought together under one umbrella body, the Department of Arts and Culture funded the launch of the Creative & Cultural Industries Federation of South Africa (CCIFSA)

The founding conference on 23/24 March 2015 in Bloemfontein was effectively hijacked by a fringe grouping, leading to the last minute withdrawal of many well established organisations, including Safrea and our associates in LAMP (The Alliance of Language and Media Practitioners). 

A fortunate outcome of the CCIFSA fiasco is that recognised associations from around the country were energised to establish our own national alliance. This initiative gained momentum at a May meeting attended by Clive Lotter and office bearers from numerous associations, including the Actors’ Guild, SASJA and the Writers’ Guild. A task team is now hard at work bringing all our related organisations into one fold. For more information on this topic, read Clive Lotter’s report to Safrea' leadership and LAMP.
