Event Description

The African Creatives Indaba (TACI) is an initiative formed by a group of five young Basotho professionals in the creative industry and related fields, namely:

  1. Matli Mohapeloa – Reputable actor who has established his name in the Film and Television Industry in South Africa
  2. Lipalesa Kolane – Assistant Vice President for the youth customer value propositions: ABSA Bank Limited
  3. Lineo Tsikoane – Lesotho based Human Rights lawyer
  4. Tholoana Ncheke – Legal Officer: Film and Publication Board
  5. Libe Mohale – Founder of Fun and Class Relations Agency (PR and Branding)

These individuals are often approached by scholars in Lesotho asking for guidance on their career paths in the creative space, most pertinent of the questions being around job opportunities and sustainability in the creative industry. Recognising this gap, the five decided to form TACI: a youth-based initiative aimed at educating, supporting and informing Basotho and other Africans about opportunities within the creative space and how the world is gradually moving towards appreciating creative professionals as decision makers and influencers in corporate industries.


Conference: 13 May 2017

TACI will host their first open mic conference at Lehakoe Recreation and Cultural Centre in Maseru, Lesotho on 13 May 2017.
