Speaking about the LTF 2024 Showcase, The Artistic Director and member of the Management team, Lydia Idakula, remarked, “It’s been a challenging couple of years, but it has also been a time that we have used to grow and expand our knowledge in the sector. We remain relentless in our goals and vision to empower emerging and established artists and support them in creating impactful work that can travel and be experienced globally. We also have a renewed zeal and passion for cultural exchange and international collaborations. We are working to create platforms that enable our producers to participate in these programmes. The future looks bright as we soar to new heights, and we would love for you to journey with us.”
