Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe Proud to Support Arts and Culture Development

14 June 2015

LAFARGE Cement Zimbabwe is proud to have been associated with the 16th edition of the Harare International Festival of Arts, which is the largest international festival in sub-Saharan Africa.

The company’s involvement in the 2015 edition of HIFA was realised through  support of theatre development in Zimbabwe. The support was motivated by the fact that theatre and the arts build on Lafarge values of innovation, creativity, imaginativeness and forward thinking. From school productions to established theatre practitioners, Zimbabwean theatre stakeholders benefited from the platform for their work which Lafarge provided through the HIFA 2015 Lafarge Theatre Programme.

The 2015 HIFA edition was running under the theme “Articulate”, and created an opportunity for artists, implementing partners and audiences to think creatively, to express ideas clearly, and to communicate a powerful artistic vision building into the future. Lafarge is therefore committed to supporting programmes that build into the future in line with its ongoing campaign of “Building Better Cities”. The vision of building better cities identifies Lafarge as a major player in the future with the rapid growth in urbanisation worldwide.

The company has made a tremendous contribution to the country’s construction industry. Landmark construction projects in the country including the Kariba Dam, Karigamombe Centre, major high-rise buildings and bridges were built with our cement which attests to the fact that we have a tried and tested product. Lafarge is proud to also be part of building something positive on the Zimbabwean social landscape through its firm support of the Harare International Festival of the Arts. This support is natural, as great things are built with Lafarge.
