Message from the Director

A key area of focus in 2022 is visual artist capacity enhancement. The NGB seeks to progressively improve the levels of knowledge, skills and networks of our resident and none-resident artists. In this regard, we will roll out a series of training workshops facilitated by local and international resource persons. Digital technology has emerged as one of the priority areas of training. We are desirous to see more artists exploiting digital technologies to create and promote their work. We are keen to see more Bulawayo artists taking up residencies in regional and international galleries and their work being showcased globally and further included in galleries’ permanent collections.
