PANSA - Performing Arts Network of South Africa  Popular
Description: PANSA is an independent, national and democratic organisation acting in the collective interests of practitioners, technical workers, administrators, educators, companies and service providers within the performing arts. In response to the growing institutional crisis in the performing arts (closure of theatres, orchestras, NGOs, loss of jobs, etc), the Network was launched in June 2001 in order to defend the interests of performing arts workers and to ensure that there was a viable performing arts industry in the country. PANSA has emerged to ensure that those who make their livelihood within the performing arts, are heard in policy-making, funding and decision-making processes that affect their lives. Individual artists and independent companies cannot work on their own to change the macro-conditions that impact directly on their lives. PANSA provides a national framework to network, strategise and lobby in their collective interests. Monthly newsletters to keep members informed of developments within the organisation and to advertise events and progress generally, have been distributed in the belief that communication and information is key to building a national and effective lobby.
