Creative Art meets The Taxi Industry

In 2015 Dion Chang was asked to adjudicate in The Taxi Foundation Art Awards. The awards mirror the role that creativity plays in the taxi industry.

The taxi foundation asks artists to take their own artwork and interpret it further and create a decal that will cover an entire taxi.

Friday Stand In, Dion Chang spoke to Kalnisha Singh, head of transformation and special projects at SA Taxi and director of the SA Taxi Foundation about this fascinating project.

We started the Taxi Foundation with the specific purpose of elevating the public perception of the mini bus taxi industry in South Africa.

So we thought it will be a very good idea to marry these two very misunderstood industries and essentially see what happens, and it has been a huge success.

We have managed in the past two years to elevate the status of the Taxi industry, especially in Gauteng.
