THE MINISTER OF SPORT, ARTS AND CULTURE LAUNCHES THE 3RD PHASE OF THE COVID-19 RELIEF FUND AS A STEP TOWARDS SECTOR STABILISATION

MEDIA STATEMENT
6 February 2021

THE MINISTER OF SPORT, ARTS AND CULTURE LAUNCHES THE 3RD PHASE OF THE COVID-19 RELIEF FUND AS A STEP TOWARDS SECTOR STABILISATION

Due to the growing concern on the rising number of COVID-19 infections; Cabinet took a decision to move the country back to COVID-19 Alert Level 3, as announced by the President on the 28th of December 2020. This announcement saw the Sport, Arts and Culture sector suffer yet another financial set-back as Government had to put in place tighter restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of the virus and saving lives of South Africans. The sector normally generates more job opportunities for practitioners during the festive period than any other season.

As an intervention to aid the plight of artists and athletes affected by this pandemic that is taking lives and livelihoods, compromising the dignity of practitioners and preventing them from fully living out their passion within the arts, Minister Nathi Mthethwa launched the 3rd Phase of the COVID-19 Relief Fund today. The implementation of this relief funding takes cognisance of the identified challenges of the first and second phases. Broader consultation with the sector were undertaken in preparation for the Third Phase of the COVID -19 Relief Fund.
