Working as a fundraiser for almost two decades in New York City at The Public Theater (home to free Shakespeare in the Park), and at The Shed most definitely solidified my love for Arts and Culture.
In 2019, I relocated with my family to Basel Stadt, my husband's hometown. Basel is a beautiful city also known as 'the cultural capital of Switzerland' with many wonderful arts and culture offerings.
Basel has a large international population with approximately 35% foreign nationals and - as a foreigner myself - I am also looking to meet people and experience the City. I realized that many of us foreign nationals want to experience what Basel has to offer but we also welcome a little guidance... and this is how Basel Tastemakers was born. As a way to build a bridge for an international audience to experience and enjoy the world-class arts and entertainment programming on offer.
Join us for a curated experience of Theater Basel’s offerings as well as events with other cultural partners in Basel. All events are suitable for English speakers and open to anyone. Every few weeks a performance will be highlighted including an apero and talk about what you are about to see with a special guest speaker. Following the performance, you are invited to stay and get together with your fellow Tastemakers. We also offer additional events throughout the year such as art tours and other social opportunities.
There is no membership fee - just the price of a ticket.
