dc.description.abstract This study will be focusing on visual and performance artists. It is the plight of artists that they work hard in their artistic disciplines, but do not benefit to the equivalence of their efforts. There are many reasons for this. Crafters are dependent on a sound tourists industry. The study will be looking at some of the reasons and concems then try to provide what could be some answers and solutions. Art is generally thought of as the development of performance skills and or craft manufacturing within a small minority of youth or community performers, usually selected on the basis of talent and motivation. The research leading to this study has been to a large extent, motivated by the need for a more comprehensive and holistic concept This will lend itselfto a fuller exploitation and will have potential for assisting larger numbers of artists to achieve a wide range of educational outcomes in art administration, instrument manufacturing, actual artistic performance and craft production. A large number of arts practitioners internationally feel that understanding a country occurs through its arts and culture. The arts of any country is actually the mirror of the country. This study will look at the arts of South Africa and the impact it has on the proudly SouthAfricans and the tourism industry at large.This study will have two primary purposes: a. to make justification for artists (visual and performance) and, b: to suggest ways in which artists can more prominently and profitably feature in the tourism industry and their sustainability as artists and proud members of South African communities. It is important to note that South African artists exist in highly diverse communities which are influenced by many factors such as: • heritage • cultural fabric • ethnic identity • experiences • different beliefs and convictions en_US
