The Bas-Arts-Index Forum is an interactive whiteboard, where any index member can edit and write project ideas, comments, suggestions for future activity the Index can support. The forum will always remain open as an ongoing working doc, but the idea would be once we have a handful of ideas, we would come together to develop these ideas, and submit an Arts Council England funding application, to accomplish the project together. You can access the Forum HERE

DISCORD - Group Conversations
As a group trying to make activity happen, we want to make it possible for Index members to stay in communication with each other. Emails can be a tad formal so we have set up a discord messenging group. Its free and really easy to join. It allows us to organise our conversations into topics so not one thread becomes over bombarded. To join the discord chat group click here:

In November 2020 Bas-Arts-Index turned 2 years old. During 2020 The Index slowed down on activity and took some time to reflect on what the index has done up to now and what it can do differently moving forward. Over the last 6 months more index members have come forward who wish to play a role in shapeing the collective together. This lead to hosting our first AGM where we discussed and voted on numerous key issues surrounding the Index. As the Index moves into a more democratic territory we aim to open up numerous strands of direct communication including the forum above, A group messenger platform called Discord and an open email thread for core index members, whom anyone can join.
