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.
