Community Arts and Arts Education in Zimbabwe

CIGSIE, Winter 2012-13

Project Description

CIGSIE, 2013

About The Project

During my trip to Zimbabwe, I will visit artists, artist communities, and art education sites to learn about the cultural diversity of the Zimbabwean peoples, and especially their desire to formulate and actualize citizen-led and community-based solutions through arts and arts education. Of particular focus are the performing, literary, and visual arts cultures of Zimbabwe.
