HIFA 1-6 May

Expressive Education

5 April 2015

HIFA has been working for several years with the University of Zimbabwe Theatre
Arts Department. On an annual basis, several of the department’s top students are
attached to the stage management crew of HIFA as part of their degree course
assessment. Not only do the students get high-value and hands-on practice for some
of the theoretical elements of their degree course, they also get invaluable exposure
to experienced local and visiting technical professionals.

This year, with the assistance of the African Music Development Programme (AMDP)
and in collaboration with the Busara Festival (Zanzibar), HIFA will extend this
educational and skills exchange initiative to technical crew members from the Busara

HIFA will bring in 4 lighting/sound technicians from South Africa who work with
their Zimbabwean counterparts to provide on-the-job training. Skills transfer is an
important element of HIFA’s overall objectives.
