Zimbabwe Youth Festival

Zimbabwe Youth Festival Zimbabwe Youth Festival is an annual youth festival founded in 2011. The festival features fine, visual and performing arts products created by young people.
The Zimbabwe Youth Festival is an interactive and youth development platform bringing together young Zimbabwean women and men from different backgrounds. It is aimed at building and supporting a formidable community of youth movement that uses the power of creativity to articulate sensitive issues and advocate for an increased range of human choices. The festival is designed as an experiential, entertaining and sustainable platform for the youth to engage in reflection on their challenges, express their concerns as well as to celebrate their own achievements, talent and role in society. It is made in such a way that it is the bridge linking young artists, young audiences and the community in general to social development as it is a carrier of development message, a demonstration of youth capacity and an employment creation vehicle. Using the international youth day platform, the festival intends to become a recurring event on the development and artistic calendars of Zimbabwe. The Zimbabwe youth festival will consult take cognisance of the global commemorative themes.

This year's event is on cards. Zimbabwe Youth Festival 2012 is themed, Sowing A Seed- building a vibrant grassroots based movement of young people actively taking part in forming, informing and contributing to national discourse through non-conventional mobilisation, participation and advocacy approaches. The project motivates young people to take a centre stage now and bear responsibility for creating a thriving country and a better tomorrow. It challenges the culture of apathy which currently typifies the state of young people in Zimbabwe. Inspired by the lessons from the previous festival, the success of the Zimbabwe Youth Festival lies in its ability to transcend physical boundaries in terms of reach and location within which the festival takes place. It combines performing arts with mass-mobilisation, seminars, film screenings and community voluntary work. Last year's event which was inaugural featured performances from Alexio Kawara, Edith weUtonga, Mokoomba, Mathias Julias and XVYBS, Chikwata 263, Umoja CFC, Roki, Stunner feat. Baba Shupi and Shastro, EQ, Leonard Mapfumo, Extra Large, Freeman, King Shaddy, Lady Squander and many more

Mission: We are building a vibrant grassroots based movement of young people actively taking part in forming, informing and contributing to community development through non-conventional mobilisation, participation and advocacy approaches.
