EPISODE 8 : Arts & Culture

The arts in South Africa – music and theatre, dance and comedy, literature and fine art – employ more than a one million people. And yet this sector gets a very thin slice of national and provincial budgets and a modest share of corporate sponsorship. The corona virus pandemic didn’t create this situation but it has hit an already vulnerable industry especially hard. How do you perform when there are no audiences allowed? John Perlman spoke was joined by two guests: Nothando Migogo, the CEO of the South African Music Rights Organisation and Jason Goliath who is a comedian, TV Presenter, businessman and co-host of Kaya Breakfast on Kaya FM.
