Global objective
The purpose of this request for services is to identify the possible options for the EC to support youth empowerment projects in the sector of culture through a call for proposals in South Africa and give expression to harness youth as drivers and participants in economic and social development.
The assignment is commissioned by the European Commission Delegation in South Africa but meets the expressed interest of other EU Donor´s already supporting CS in South Africa to be part of the study in view of enhancing coordination of future support and of securing more predictable long-term funding.
Specific objective(s)
The specific objectives of the services rendered with respect to formulation of draft guidelines for a call for proposals comprise:
  • An analysis of the youth and culture policy in South Africa and the role of the different institutions (National Arts Council (NAC), Department of Arts and Culture (DAC), CSO, European National Institutes of Culture (EUNIC) etc.) at national and local level. Consideration should equally be given to the existing DAC strategy as well as the role of donors.
  • A mapping of existing initiatives in the field of youth empowerment/culture in South Africa (DAC, CSO, donors including EC and EUNIC) will be carried out.
  • An assessment of the needs identified by both DAC and non State-Actors.
  • Following the mapping report and needs assessment, recommendations will be made and guidelines for the call for proposals will be drafted, in compliance with the TAPS and logframe (including indicators and sources of verification). The guidelines should include a description of the proposed lots, budget and implementation calendar.
Through a participatory and interactive approach relevant stakeholders have to be included in the elaboration and validation of the study through two country-wide 1 day workshops. Consultations should equally be carried out with DAC in order to confirm their priorities.
