“We use a range of innovative statistical methodologies, audits and research tools to understand our creative economy,” SACO said. “Our main purpose is the development of a comprehensive cultural information system, which continuously captures cultural data and monitors and evaluates government initiatives in the arts, culture and heritage sectors and cultural and creative industries.”

Initiated by the Department of Arts and Culture, through the Mzansi Golden Economy Strategy, SACO is a statistical and socio-economic research project, launched in 2014, which charts the socio-economic impact of the arts, culture and heritage sectors and the cultural and creative industries in South Africa.
