Last night, MayFord Seeds were proud to receive the 2015 BASA Arts & Environment Award, supported by Nedbank.This is for our work in accessing supporting grants from BASA and utilising the Arts to leverage our brand in events such as ‘In Tune with Nature’ and other fundraising events where we’ve leveraged our brand, such as ‘Last Night of the Proms’, ‘Dutch Evening’ and the ‘Symphony Choir Concerts’; and then applying all of this to promoting Grow Your Own and the environment
The foyer of the Constitutional Court of South Africa proved a fitting context for the eleven diverse business and arts partnerships honoured at the 18th Annual Business Day BASA Awards, partnered by Hollard, on September 21st, 2015.
Surrounded by artworks from the Constitutional Court Art Collection (CCAC), the winners in the eleven judged categories were celebrated, along with the winners of the event’s four special awards selected at the discretion of the Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) Board.
Each winner received a unique sculpture by renowned artist, Collen Maswanganyi, inspired by the theme of transformation. Maswanganyi created a “family” of pieces, with each sculpture representing a different family member who has undergone, or is busy undergoing, a transformation of his or her own.
“We’d like to congratulate all the winners tonight,” commented Michelle Constant, BASA CEO. “By celebrating these business and arts partnerships, we are also paying tribute to the power of the arts, in all its diversity, to be a tool of transformation.”
