who is baz-art?

BAZ ART IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT IS DEDICATED TO HARNESSING THE POWER OF ART FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PUBLIC. (As has been done in cities and towns across the globe - to resounding success)

Baz Art channels its energies and achieves its objectives through Art Creation, Education, Incorporation and Development. The Baz Art business model is to encourage novel partnerships between artists and residents, as well as neighbourhoods, businesses, and organizations in the community. Baz Art strives for inclusivity, involvement and community respect.

Moreover, Baz Art is in it for the long haul, with relevant and sustainable long-term development objectives. The Baz Art modus operandi is to first identify a development opportunity with a number of diverse but inter-related outcomes, and then employ their skills, insights, network and experience to uplift, engage and empower others.
