The ACT Tlholo ‘Uncovering Solutions’ project was launched by the Arts & Culture Trust in 2020 to find and share creative business solutions from South Africa’s arts communities through an online web series and facilitated discussions.

This explorative uncovering culminates in an exciting and widely accessible radio series in all nine provinces and illuminates how Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) can help identify the assets around you to help build a sustainable arts business. These radio conversations bring together ACT Tlholo presenter, ABCD specialist Onthatile Ditshego, with arts community leaders from each province to discuss their findings on radio this February.

The ‘Uncovering Solutions’ project is funded by Nedbank and presented in partnership with the Sibikwa Arts Centre.

The following sees the provincial schedule and sets a reminder not to miss this these exciting discussions!
