Various advantages – probably the most exciting benefit is the use of the SANAVA residence facility in the studio apartments in Paris – find out more about Cité Internationale des Arts.
Other advantages include:
- A member branch may use SANAVA as a parent body when applying for corporate or government funds for art projects. SANAVA is a registered public benefit organisation and a registered non-profit organisation which means that donors receive tax benefits for their funding projects. Keep in mind that funding applications to the National Arts Council and the National Lottery Board are coordinated by SANAVA’s secretariat.
- All SANAVA members are invited to national and international exhibitions and competitions, including the annual Barclays L’Atelier and the Sasol New Signatures. A great benefit to members is that the free run-up Barclays L’Atelier workshops are offered in all the provinces. More good news is that transport to Pretoria is sponsored for artworks selected for the Sasol New Signatures exhibition and Absa sponsors the transport of works for the L’Atelier exhibition, which takes place in Johannesburg.
- SANAVA members (artists who are members of an arts association which is a SANAVA member) may apply annually for an International Association of Arts membership card offering professional South African artists and art curators free or discounted access to international galleries and museums.
