VANSA operates as a development agency for the visual arts in South Africa, promoting connection, access and innovation in our industry. This website has been developed as an up-to-the minute resource, providing information, advice and tools for artists, businesses and organisations, as well as providing a platform for research, awareness and discussion around key industry issues.
The Lottery Amendment Bill was tabled for public comment by the Department of Trade and Industry in May. VANSA worked with Arterial Network South Africa in the development of a submission on the content of the Bill endorsed by a broad base of sector organisations. Our submission builds on the detailed input to the Department on its Lottery Review Policy Document - on which the present bill is based - which we submitted in December last year. See also the dti's response to our submission (and those of other organisations) in the download at the bottom of the page.
