End-of-the-Year-Party on 8th December 2017

Like every year, we would like to invite all ASK-members to our big Christmas/End-of-the-Year-Party on Friday, 8th December 2017.


Location: L'Esprit, Laufenstrasse 44 (Gundeli), Basel

Start: 19.00h


If you already joined us last year, you don't want to miss it this year ...
The focus is on the reunion and the exchange with old and new acquaintances. There is also plenty of entertainment: The ASK theater group will surprise us with an entertaining, amusing self-production. And in between, the choirs of "Singen ohne Grenzen" will entertain us with beautiful song performances. Later in the evening, our DJ Klaus will play music for us. And last but not least, we can do some dancing to hits from the last decades.


The highlight, however, we owe to you all. Because the principle is as always: pot luck. Everyone who brings something nice to eat (salad, main course, dessert). The buffet offers thus culinary surprises. That's why you should not miss the Christmas party. The drinks are offered. Everyone can bring a guest along.


Space is limited, therefore: First come - first serve.


Please register via link below, indicate names of you and your guest:



ASK celebrates its 6th birthday!

In April 2011 ASK has been founded - The organisation builts bridges and has a lot to offer.


What sounds like a fairy tale has become reality. ASK (exchange in sports and culture) came out of nowhere and was founded in April 2011 by a few founding members with zero financial capital on a beautiful spring day in Basel.


Sabri Dogan, who is still the president of the organisation, wants to give people a chance to exchange ideas irrespective of their origin, religion, status, age, etc. The idea is that people who meet in an informal setting where they can pursue their interests and hobbies can create bonds and bridges to other people. Thus, prejudices are reduced.


ASK offer its members a wide range of cultural, educational and sporting activities against a small yearly fee of CHF 60.00 (Single persons) and CHF 80.00 (Family/Partners), most of those activities are usually free of charge and included in the Membership fee.


In the six years since, ASK has been able to celebrate many successes. Among other things, the organisation was awarded the "schappo" Volunteer Prize of the Canton Basel-Stadt after only three years. 

But the biggest achievment is that already more than 250 members are faithful to ASK and can benefit from a wide offer.


ASK finances itself from membership contributions and donations and accomplished the impossible with an annual budget of approx. Fr. 20'000.00.


But the real capital of the association is the many volunteers. They make the internal process and the operational procedures for courses / events possible. The operation of ASK can continue to be carried out to this extent only through the great commitment of the helpers.


Also in 2017 there will be a lot to experience at ASK.

The board, is pleased to continue the organisation with your support and to create more unforgettable moments and beautiful hours for its members.


The Board of ASK wishes all members a lot of fun and bridge-building experiences!

Pick mushrooms


We are going to go mushrooming again this year!


The mushroom picking is very popular. Also this year we collect mushrooms in the Black Forest, provided the weather conditions allow it.

We meet on Saturday, 7th October, 2017, at 10.00 am, just after the border in Germany. With our mushroom expert Masha, we walk through the Black Forest and pick mushrooms.


The event is for a maximum of 14 people. Criterias are applied in the following order as a basis for a registration:
1. Membership (already paid)
2. Registration in the order of receipt up to a maximum of 14 persons
3. Payment of the fee of CHF 20.00 to cover the cost for the expert 7 days before the event at the latest to our bank account.

More information will follow after compulsory registration.



ASK is looking for helpers for various events!

ASK organizes several events for its members each year and needs your support!


In the coming months, ASK will again organize many events from which its members will benefit.


Whether it is the concert at which the two "Singing without Borders" choirs will perform or the "Christmas Festival" in December, where a supporting program (music, theater performance, choir, etc.) is performed or the funhall tournament in Liestal - ASK needs support , so that these "bigger events" also succeed.


We would appreciate if you could assist us with the catering, installation or administration of these events.


Please get in touch with us and we will be glad to give you more detailed information.
