Keeping it real
19 June 2020 | Art and Entertainment
Recently, the ministry of arts and culture launched a relief fund to assist artists to and enable them to continue doing their work. I applaud the ministry for that initiative.
There are loads of creative efforts to provide new ways of delivering music and dance to audiences by way of livestreaming and archived video concerts, but the revenue from these efforts is quite low.
And while praise is due to enlightened ministries that recognise the value of culture in hard times, many of our cherished artists and organisations are in real danger of extinction.
I can never say this enough: Support local content.
