We walk through our homes and with a simple push of a button our minds are transported to an Opera House or stadium. In a time when the world needs to distance from one another there have been millions of threads that bind us through the Arts. Every individual involved in this wonderous Industry has been there for humanity and culture, creating the magic and entertaining our dreams.
We all look forward to a world where we can meet again without restriction and dance under the stars at festivals. We can make this happen by keeping those around us safe by implementing the Protocols set out for The Arts.
During this time you, as our support, have kept our industry alive, you watch from a distance but listen with your heart. We thank all who have gone online and listened from home, all those who have asked for us to work again and to those who offer their support in keeping us creating in spaces around the world. We create for others so that they may for a moment be part of the world of Arts, the world of creatives and all those who live and work in this wonderland of imagination.
In this space of a global crisis we have come together and supported those around us. We have put on our masks and taken up the challenge in implementing Protocols in our Industries and sectors in order to protect those around us. Thank you to every person involved in all the beautiful facets of The Arts, Events and Creative World. We look forward to a time when we can once again freely express our humanity and culture, for now we look to protecting those around us and we do so knowing that we are the flame that keeps creativity and expression alive for the world.
The formation of Protocols are based on scientific evidence from various fields and the implementation is to go through public testing and sustainability studies. Protocols are about saving lives and protecting the public and private sectors.
In considering the implementation and use of Protocols we put People First as lives are at stake. Ethical considerations are to form a baseline in terms of the sharing of information and the use of data to form the needed Protocol measures.
The use of Technology fundamentally changes how effectively we are able to implement Protocols and then monitor their effectiveness. Monitoring data and the ever changing direction of the challenges we face in the world determines the speed of our response.
The protocols being implemented worldwide and relating to the current COVID-19 pandemic are guidelines, measures and procedures formed by medical bodies, councils, and scientific research and study. It is advised that you consult directly with your Government or representative Council or Association before implementing any COVID-19 protocols. There are many legal implications if you implement measures that are not uniformly accepted worldwide. Currently the main reference point for all COVID-19 protocols is the World Health Organization - https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019
Please seek legal assistance and oversight when developing or implementing any protocol measures.
This site and all related sites DO NOT in any way or form develop protocols and all protocols listed on the site are guidelines only, by the relevant representative organisation. This site is a Public Benefit page with the aim of studying the impact of COVID-19 on Tourism in South Africa.
