Harare International Festival of the Arts
HIFA is a 6-day annual festival and workshop programme that showcases the very best of local, regional and international arts and culture in a comprehensive festival programme of theatre, dance, music, circus, street performance, spoken word, visual arts. HIFA has come to be seen as an important symbol of something positive about Zimbabwe, unifying socially and culturally disparate groups of Zimbabweans at a time of ideological conflict and political uncertainty bringing huge audiences together to celebrate something positive – the healing and constructive capacity of the arts. The shows and performances are distributed around various venues in the city centre.
POVO at HIFA
The shows we cover at the moment deal mainly with shows and performances in and around the main HIFA precinct, the heart of HIFA in our opinion which includes the National Gallery and Harare Gardens. Hence most of the shows covered are music shows.
