Nhimbe Trust based in the city of Bulawayo is an arts education organisation and a leader in cultural policy research, training and advocacy and defending freedom of creative expression.
Nhimbe Trust runs 2 major initiatives supported by Africalia:
Children in Theathe and Television (CITT): this school provides vocational training in theatre for young people (ages 15-25). It is a weekend school where a group of 30 young people from 6 schools around Bulawayo learn performing arts skills and make theatre in a training program over 3 years.
Women in Theatre and Television (WITT): this project provides vocational training and resources to emerging women writers, actresses, directors and producers. Since 2013, the WIT is also linked with Amakhosi Theatre Center’s « Plays on Sundays » through WITT Labs, which aims to regularly present the work of these women and empower women’s voices on stage. WITT takes them to other venues across the country and looks for regional and international opportunities.
Programme 2015-2016: Africalia supports core staff costs and the CITT and WITT projects.
