Download the PDF version of the Culture Lens Index 2015 over here In an effort to domesticate the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, Nhimbe launched the “Culture Lens Index” to replace the NPAAC Index, which was discontinued at the end of NPAAC in 2015. The Culture Lens Index is the first of its kind in Zimbabwean arts and culture public policy discourse – it is an amalgamation of qualitative and quantitative monitoring frameworks and is set to capture Zimbabwe’s progress in complying with the provisions of the 2005 UNESCO Convention. Nhimbe is part of the national team appointed in 2015 to prepare the national progress report on the implementation of the 2005 UNESCO Convention.

Nhimbe brings play on missing $15 billion diamonds to Bulawayo theatre

Nhimbe Trust with the support of Africalia will bring the one man play titled Missing Diamonds: I want my share by Silvanos Mudzova to the Bulawayo Theatre on Thursday 5 May 2016 at 18:30pm at an admission fee of $3 as part of Nhimbe’s cultural decentralisation initiative. The aim of the Nhimbe Cultural Decentralisation is to support the craft of both emerging and established writers in service of our commitment to developing new work and audiences for Zimbabwean theatre. The play Missing Diamonds: I want my share was stopped at Parliament on the 13th of April and later staged at Theatre in the Park Harare on Wednesday 20 April 2016. Missing Diamonds was created after the president of Zimbabwe openly admitted that the country lost 15 billion dollars to diamond mining companies in Chiyadzwa. Mudzova was working on a documentary about what he thought was unfair for people of Chiyadzwa and Zimunya continuous suffering despite millions being mined in their area, but after President Mugabe admission he decided to create a theatre play now instead of a documentary. In the play Mudzvova asks questions to the Government, Chinese embassy and Mbada diamonds on where his share is. Where the share of the poverty stricken, dust laden, and hunger ravaged rural Zimbabwe is? And where is the share the hawkers who have the spinal cord of the Zimbabwean economy amongst other crucial questions surrounding the diamond revenue. The play has already received two international invitations. Thursday 5 May at 18:30hrs come and witness award winning actor Silvanos Mudzvova as he demands his share of the looted money. This is Mudzova’s first one man play. Silvanos Mudzvova is famed for his hard hitting theatre plays and films. Make a date!
