The first Port Elizabeth series of workshops in the 2013 BASA Education Programme, supported by Etana Insurance, take place on 24 April at the Athenaeum, on the corner of Castle Hill and Belmont Terrace. These workshops are free to pre-registered participants.
Businesses will also be able to take part in the focused activities on 24 April by attending a business breakfast at the Ron Belling Art Gallery.
The business breakfast will include national and regional Business and Arts South Africa representatives and will give insight into a number of initiatives aimed at business. These include the first-of-its-kind BASA Arts Sponsorship Management Toolkit, which gives South African businesses a tool to navigating the sponsorship cycle and, ultimately, the ability to measure the effectiveness of arts sponsorship as a strategic part of any business.
“BASA’s Eastern Cape roadshow provides a local networking platform for artists and business people in the province, by providing much needed professional development opportunities, and also integral information regarding resources available through BASA” explains Business and Arts South Africa representative in the region – Germaine Gamiet.
