HIFA is about art, and art is about life. Indeed art is life. It is creative; it heals; it unifies. It brings light to where there was once only darkness. It brings hope to where there was once only despair.
Times are hard in Zimbabwe, nobody can deny that. The explosion of artistic creativity unleashed by HIFA brings light and hope and banishes darkness and despair. It enables the people of Zimbabwe to show the world their resilience and strength in the face of adversity. It enables them to show that this country is indeed unique in its character and its people’s qualities such as hospitality, generosity and friendship. It is a beacon to the world saying, come and share what makes our country great; come and share our brotherhood and sisterhood; come and share our love of the arts and humanity.
