HIFA 1-6 May

Expressive Talent Nurturing

5 April 2015

With the support of the United Nations in Zimbabwe, the European Union,
Royal Norwegian Embassy and HIVOS, HIFA will present a series of workshops for
both Arts professionals and the general public. These promote greater cross-cultural
interaction resulting in novel creative enterprises.

Under the aegis of its HIFA Access workshop programme throughout the year, HIFA
conducts skills enhancement workshops in various parts of the country. For instance,
working with the Mahenye Trust in Zimbabwe’s South Eastern Lowveld area, HIFA
has presented extensive workshops on beading with various rural women’s groups
around Chiredzi and surrounding areas. Works that they have produced will not
only feature at the Festival this year but the skills they have gained will also assist in
enhancing their product sales outside of the Festival context.

HIFA also holds workshops and discussion forums with artists in order to address
problems, share possible solutions, and work together towards more dynamic artistic
development. HIFA actively assists Zimbabwean artistic endeavours throughout
the year, particularly other festivals, and regularly lends equipment and expertise to
assist in the staging of these artistic activities.
