Engaging men project holds fine art exhibition

MIRROR REPORTER

MASVINGO – Fourteen exhibitors showcased their cultural entrepreneurial products in fine art, and sculpture making during Saturday’s exhibition at the Charles Austin Theatre on Saturday.

The exhibition was organised by a Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) Law school graduate Angela Maduro and Trinity Charity Foundation co-founder Kudakwashe Mutamachimwe who is the project facilitator. They are carrying out a six-month-long project titled: Engaging men and boys affected by toxic masculinity in promoting and preserving culture through entrepreneurship.

Masvingo Urban legislator Martin Mureri was the guest of honor, Masvingo Mayor Aleck Tabe, and representatives from the Ministry of Sports, Recreation, Arts, and Culture, Masvingo Disability Network Chairperson Purazeni Jakata and Disability Amalgamation Community Trust executive director Henry Chivhanga among others attended the exhibition.

Mureri applauded the initiative as it is reducing drug and substance abuse, crime rates and delinquent behaviour that most men and youth are indulging in.
Maduro said the exhibitors were trained under her project and GZU lecturer in the Department of Technical Education Art and Design Solomon Imbayago was an art tutor during the project implementation.

“The project mainly focused on exhibiting fine art. We have 30 project participants but only 14 exhibited. Some of the outstanding exhibitors are Takunda Mashamaire, Lynyale Reason Charuka, and Prowess Chirombo. We also took the opportunity to raise our grievances to the responsible authorities for the establishment of an art gallery,” she said.
Maduro held a similar exhibition near Great Zimbabwe Ruins last year at the inception of her project.
