Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) in partnership with Rand Merchant Bank invites new applications for the BASA Scale-Up programme 2019.

BASA Head of Programmes, Boitumelo “Tumy” Motsoatsoe says “the idea behind Scale-Up is to interrogate the state of the arts sector, and to create a dynamic networking space in which to share ideas and strategies to increase access, create value and cultivate agency for artists”. Through a series of webinars, site visits, events, online engagement, and workshops from May to September 2019, Scale-Up will encourage collaboration, connection and co-creation towards more meaningful engagement in the sector.

Successful applicants for Scale-Up will be expected to attend all programme activities, or appoint the relevant organisational representatives to take part. The most committed individuals and organisations will have an opportunity to pitch for a grant and participation in a mentorship scheme at the end of the programme.

Who should apply?

·         Individual creative practitioners between 25 to 40 years old.

·         Creative/cultural organisations working with people between 25 to 40 years old.

·         Applicants (both individual and organisations) must have been practicing for a minimum of 3 years, and live and/or work in Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Durban.
