Arts, culture and heritage (ACH) sector and cultural and creative industry (CCIs) practitioners and stakeholders; academics and researchers; interested parties from local, provincial and national government; arts managers, administrators, organisations and fundraisers and funders; event and festival organisers; and relevant stakeholders from civil society.

You are invited to one of two South African Cultural Observatory (SACO) Capacity-Building Workshops focused on Research Methodologies for the Cultural & Creative Industries.

UP FOR DISCUSSION:

  • Introduction to the South African Cultural Observatory
  • UNESCO Cultural Cycle, five stages of research and cultural domains
  • Understanding the process of artistic creation and production
  • Research design: Framing and creating a research proposal or funding application
  • Developing a research proposal and budget
  • Data analysis

Exploration of other resources and important research questions for the CCIs & ACH sectors

and more.

THE WORKSHOP

We can’t improve South Africa’s CCIs and ACH sectors and their performance without understanding how they operate and what the trends shaping the industry are – and research supports this understanding. This workshop explores different research methods and design practices from social science methods and how to produce both qualitative (interviews and observations) and quantitative data (statistics). The course guides practitioners on how to:

  • employ scientific methods
  • make use of mixed methods and
  • draft funding applications.
