This chapter explores the reality of the practice of cultural governance in South Africa. It provides the reader with an overview of the struggle and challenges faced in South Africa, but also concludes that this type of project is well timed in terms of the stage the country has reached in its present history. This is a country informed by struggle, apartheid, compliance, and policy, and how the cultural institutions face the future is important in terms of the future. Therefore, in the following pages the reader is given an insight into the influence and challenges that are being faced.
