Artists & Active Citizens via Awethu [awethu@amandla.mobi]

I received this from a colleague on Facebook and then received it in an email from the organization above. And yes, I did sign it and yes, I do think it is time we start representing ourselves and not simply accepting a political nominee who possibly has neither knowledge or interest in the development of our vast and vibrant cultural and artistic scene.

Dear Friends,

I just signed the campaign: Ramaphosa, appoint Arts Minister from civil society

It would mean the world to me if you could also add your name to this important issue. Every name that is added builds momentum around the campaign and makes it more likely for us to get the change we want to see.

Will you join me by taking action on this campaign?
