Business and Arts South Africa

Founded in 1997, as a joint initiative between government and business, BASA is a public-private partnership that forms part of South Africa’s strategy to secure greater involvement in and support for the arts from businesses in South Africa. For this reason, BASA Grants have a slightly different lens to conventional funding and development agencies in that our focus is on amplifying and extending existing partnerships between arts and businesses that aim to meaningfully impact society through shared value and social cohesion.
