16 on Lerotholi is a space that uses art as an essential tool to foster understanding, empathy and solidarity within the Langa community, in South Africa at large, within the African continent and beyond. Additionally, the space showcases the brilliant powerhouses of creativity that the continent breathes. Each year, 16 on Lerotholi will stage a number of exhibitions, and will run an artist in residence programme. Mongezi Gum is the first artist to participate in the programme.
