DSACR COVID-19 RELIEF FUND DEADLINE EXTENSION
Following requests from interested parties and stakeholders for an extension of the deadline for Artists and Athletes Relief Fund applications, the Free State Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation (DSACR) has taken a decision to extend the deadline for applications to 20 May 2020.
DSACR has also resolved to create an extra email account specifically for these applications and this is intended to expedite the process for submissions from artists and athletes. The email address for this purpose is firstname.lastname@example.org. Online submissions of applications can still be done through the DSACR’s website: www.fssacr.gov.za.
In an effort to further ensure easy access to relevant information pertaining to the application process as well as terms and conditions, application forms and guidelines are available at municipal offices across the province, Musicon in Bloemfontein as well as Arts and Culture Centres in Phuthaditjhaba, Thaba Nchu, Zamdela (Sasolburg) and Thabong (Welkom).
All relief fund applications for athletes are channelled through Free State Sports Federations representing different sporting codes. Only relief fund applications for artists should be collected and submitted through the above-mentioned institutions and process.
For further enquires, interested and qualifying artists should contact Mr. Barry Swanepoel on 066 479 1940.
