Thebe Phetogo: “the grant helped us expand the scope of our project”

ANT Tales is a series in which we catch up with past ANT Mobility Fund recipients to find out how this support impacted their work and professional pathway.

The Botswana Pavilion is the name of an artist collective comprising Batswanian artists Thebe Phetogo, LegakwanaLeo Makgekgenene, Thero Makepe, Kim Karabo Makin, Sade Shoalane. In 2020 the collective received ANT Mobility support for ‘Collective Ties’, an immersive digital exhibition featuring collaborative works by artists from Botswana, Zimbabwe, Malawi and South Africa. 

Receiving an ANT Mobility grant was a new milestone for us as a burgeoning collective. In many ways this fund was a major endorsement of the work we had already done and the potential of the work we were yet to do. Especially during a year as turbulent as 2020 where we had to pivot from some of our initial ideas, the grant helped us expand the scope of our project, resulting in a successful virtual exhibition with robust accompanying online programming.
