Calling the South African Literary Sector! The Department of Sport, Arts and Culture (DSAC), in collaboration with the Academic and Non-Fiction Authors' Association of South Africa (ANFASA), is thrilled to announce the opening of the DSAC Publishing Hub for 2024/25 call for manuscripts, selection panel, and publishers. Following a successful launch last year, the DSAC Publishing Hub initiative aims to ignite the spark that will illuminate untold stories, celebrate the South African heritage, empower authors and the books and publishing sector across South Africa.

Museums in the City of Tshwane will be celebrating International Museum Day under the theme “Museums for Education and Research”.

The International Council of Museums (ICOM) established International Museum Day in 1977 to increase public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society. ICOM was founded in 1946 as an international non-governmental organisation linked to UNESCO. Momentum has been rising unabated ever since and in 2013, International Museum Day garnered record-breaking participation with almost 35 000 museums hosting events in more than 143 countries, including South Africa.
