Presented by Business and Arts South Africa NPC (BASA) and Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) with support by the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa (IDC)

The Climate/Culture Programme (CCP) presented by Business and Arts South Africa NPC (BASA) and Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) with support from the Industrial Development Corporation of SA (IDC), seeks to locate the current discourse amongst, and praxis of, leading cultural and creative practitioners in response to the climate emergency.

BASA starts a pressing and much-needed conversation about how the Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI) are responding to this climate emergency, by offering a platform for deeper discussion and dissemination, whilst supporting our practitioners within the South African CCI.

The microsite houses thought-leader contributions towards climate justice and necessary greening in film,  fashion, architecture, visual art, theatre, social entrepreneurship and the wellbeing economy – foregrounded and located in the Climate Justice Charter.
