The defining event of BASA’s relationship with the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture, the Debut Programme is unique in its aim to provide business and entrepreneurial skills development to emerging artists in all nine provinces of South Africa. The programme is committed to providing participants with a suite of skills that sweep the range required to launch, build, or sustain their creative business ventures. Divided into three key phases this year – Kickstarter, Hlanganisa and Catalyst – the programme ensures a systematic approach to mentoring its artists to allow full-scale access to relevant information and networks to help them build the resources they need – from ideation to venture implementation.
