The National Heritage Council of South Africa (NHC) in partnership with the Artscape Theatre will be hosting the 10th annual Golden Shield Heritage Awards this Heritage in the Western Cape province. The Awards recognise and acknowledge the significant roles that individuals, communities, groups, and companies play in the management of heritage, whether tangible, intangible, movable or immovable.

The GOSHA are one of  the most remarkable milestone in 2023 for the NHC. It marks a decade of the successful programme in partnership with various provincial departments and local authorities to restore the pride of heritage practice. The awards were conceived in 2007 and were implemented only in 2012 due to an intensive study of the environment which was through seminars, conferences and observations made, realising that there was a gap in the nation building and transformation space for a platform where the South African public could celebrate and cherish their heritage while being recognised for their excellence.
