This week: In an announcement on www.nac.org.za, the National Arts Council argues that it needs to move from a "mainly funding body to a development oriented organisation" - sounding yet another warning bell for artists who already struggle to obtain funding for their projects. Sue Williamson takes a close look at the statement and suggests that it is time for visual artists to follow the example of performing artists and form a national lobbying organisation to protect their interests.

September edition: We're putting the finishing touches to our new design and will be going live with the new edition on Thursday
