The Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) Supporting Grants Programme augments and amplifies powerful partnerships between business and arts partners to effect meaningful social change.
“BASA grant making has a significantly different purpose compared to other more conventional arts funding models,” comments BASA CEO, Ashraf Johaardien. “The purpose of our Supporting Grants has never been to fund projects per se, but rather to support partnerships with a clear focus on amplifying and extending these,” he explains.
Interested parties are invited to submit a formal letter of interest as a first step. Eligible applicants who meet the necessary criteria will then be invited to complete an online application. The next deadline for letters of interest is 14 December 2021 for projects commencing from 1 April 2022.
