The 2023 Heritage Month focuses on South Africa’s rich and diverse cultural heritage and its immense contribution to our social, economic, health, and scientific well-being, especially for rural, township, and peri-urban communities.

Annually, September marks Heritage Month, with Heritage Day celebrated on 24 September by showcasing our nation’s diverse culture and heritage.
