‘Giving Voice to the Artist’: The Impact of Current Cultural Policy Discourse on Zimbabwean Arts

The cultural symposium was organised by the Nhimbe in partnership with Arterial Network
Zimbabwe, Pamberi Trust and with funding from MIMETA; as part of NPAAC - aimed at exploring and
enhancing the role of festivals as effective advocacy platforms and tools for policy reforms or
implementation. It was held on the sidelines of HIFA as part of the festival because festivals play a
powerful role in turning a multicultural society into an intercultural society, which is a strategic step
in the process of integration. The symposium organisers thought it important to bring policy
discourse into an event such as HIFA so as to raise awareness on pertinent and current policy issues
and initiate dialogue between festival patrons and policy makers.
