The festival, as always, seeks to use different art genres to celebrate the spring season with artworks that revolve around the issues of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, and resurrection,” explained Baya.
He said this year’s edition is about positivity and being optimistic about the future.
Various activities will be held at the City Hall Car Park, Bulawayo Theatre, National Art Gallery in Bulawayo and Homestead Conference Centre.
