From Ballet to a New National Theatre; The Arts Part of Tito’s 2019 Budget

SA’s minister of finance, Tito Mboweni, in his Wednesday afternoon 2019 Budget speech, disclosed that the South African government will fund the creation of a new national theatre and a new national museum.

In addition, the South African government through the department of arts and culture will also consider financial support for the National Archives, a national orchestra and ballet troupe.

“The global renown of South Africa’s art and culture is an expression of our soft power and our heritage,” Mboweni said.

He added: “Our public funding choices should reflect an intention to preserve and add to our cultural canon.”
