BOOST FROM BASA (article first published : 2000-03-10)

BASA (Business Arts South Africa) announced today that it would boost Absa's sponsorship of a young South African artist by donating a further R15 000. Ryan Arenson, winner of last year's Absa Atelier Art Award, received a round trip to France, R60 000 and up to six months accommodation in Paris as part of his prize from Absa. Arenson was keen to exhibit some of his work in Paris and Absa approached BASA for additional funding to meet these expenses.

"When Ryan approached us for help to take his paintings to France, we felt that it would be a wonderful opportunity to help promote interest in South African contemporary art and culture abroad," says Cecile Loedolff: Manager of Arts at Absa. "We were delighted by the quick response to our request and we would like to say thank you to Nicola Danby and her team for their dedication to the arts."

Under the matching grant scheme, a sponsoring organisation can approach BASA for additional funding for a particular project or event. The additional funding is provided by the National Department of Arts, Culture, Science & Technology. More details from BASA on basa@icon.co.za
