Known for her lyrical and gutsy poetry, Lebogang Mashile is an award-winning writer, presenter, actress and activist and as such was invited to co-curate Season 1 of The Centre for the Less Good Idea.
Lebogang immediately launched herself in to multiple conversations with other invited participants for the Season, through these conversations it became clear to Lebogang that to some extent she was feeling boxed in her industry. Lebogang's ability to develop profound and substantial work in a collaborative and multidisciplinary environment is exceptional.
One of these conversations translated in to VENUS HOTTENTOT VS. MODERNITY. It is a collaboration between Lebogang, Ann Masina, Tlale Makhene and Nhlanhla Mahlangu
