KUD “Dejan Jovanović Deša” was founded in April 1946 under the name “Rade Blagojević”. Later, he changed his name to a well-known ethnologist, Dr. Tihomir Djordjevic, who attended elementary school in Tesica. Only at the beginning of the nineties of the last century did he change the name he still has today. It is one of the oldest, amateur societies in this part of the country. Today, KUD “Dejan Jovanović Deša” has more than 50 members, aged 4 to 40, not only in Tešica but also in several villages in Podjastrebac.
