In this issue of From Evidence to Action, we look at the arts and culture sector in South Africa, and the critical role it can play in the development of the country, from economic to skills development, tourism to job creation. In our feature article, we find out about the Southern African Theatre Initiative (SATI) series of provincial indabas and why this consultative process was so important. Continuing this focus on consultation, we also present several toolkits for improving public participation in our Tools section. We examine the crucial role networks can play for development and training in the arts and culture sector in our case study on the National Community Theatre for Education and Development (NACTED) and our Spotlight on the Arterial Network, which seeks to promote and develop the arts in Africa. Finally, our Resources section is packed with information about what is going on currently in policy and legislation, recent reports and relevant links.
