Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) in partnership with Rand Merchant Bank are launching the second iteration of their successful Scale-Up programme. The objectives of the programme are to connect creative practitioners and cultural organisations to interrogate the state of the sector, and to create a dynamic networking space to share ideas and strategies to increase access, create value and to cultivate agency.
The Scale-Up programme encourages collaboration, connection and co-creation towards a more meaningful engagement in the sector through a series of webinars, site visits, events, online engagement and workshops. These activities happen between May and September 2019. The selected participants will be expected to attend or to appoint organisation representatives to take part. The most committed individuals and organisations will get an opportunity, at the end of the programme, to pitch for a grant and mentorship.
The modules include: Creative Market Growth, Design Thinking, Shared Value, Cultural Entrepreneurship, Governance and Strategic Operations. At the end of the programme, participants will have a sense of agility, access and ability, to define, understand and articulate their value in this sector
