Our growth helps make art organisations “opportunity ready”

GROWTH is best exemplified by new programmes that have provided and supported knowledge transfer, skills development, and training within the cultural and creative sector, helping to make arts organisations “opportunity ready”. Through skills development, BASA provides agency and access to the arts sector in order to support its engagement with the business sector.

In our 20th year, we aim to start consolidating our diverse programmes and find ways to ensure systemic change. In this mix is The Business Exchange Programme, the BASA First Rand Foundation Creative Mapping System and the RMB Ecosystems and Systemic Change Pilot: Keiskamma.
