Impact Study of the DSAC Funded BASA Supporting Grant Programme DSAC has had a strategic partnership with BASA since 1997, a NPC to support the arts sector, specifically in relation to the DSAC funded BASA Supporting Grant Programme and Debut Programme which recently started in 2017. In the last 6 years the number of beneficiaries ranged from 63 in 2017 and 2019 to 99 in 2015 for the Supporting Grants Programme and declined from 197 in 2017 to 14 in 2019 for the Debut Programme. This study was intended assess the impact of DSAC funding to BASA in relation to the arts sector. However, methodological challenges were experienced in relation to beneficiary survey completion, with only 12 beneficiaries responding. The generalisability of the beneficiary survey results is therefore compromised.
