Abstract [en]

Shuttle 99 was a cultural project between the five Nordic countries and South Africa.The project was initiated by the Nordic Council of Ministers after the wish from Nelson Mandela that the Nordic countries might now, post-apartheid, get to know the diversity of South African arts and culture. The project was divided into five sectors: film and photography, dance, music, literature and visual arts. During the year 1999, more than one hundred projects were carried out and some 1000 persons - both from the North and South - took part in a wide variety of programmes. Projects were organized both in South Africa and in all the five Nordic countries, and the title shuttle&quot, describes the two way traffic that resulted.What happened after 1999? Did Shuttle 99 leave any legacy? Five years after Shuttle 99, the Nordic Council of Ministers commissioned an review of the project. Nicky du Plessis, who assisted Shuttle 99, contacted the major partners in South Africa and in the Nordic countries and collected material about the impact of the Nordic - South African cultural collaboration in both regions. The review analyses the Shuttle model and gives an overview of contemporary cultural policy and concerns in South Africa today. Suggestions for further cultural cooperation between the Nordic countries and South Africa are provided, looking to future partnerships.
