Together with the National Arts Council of Zambia (NAC), Hivos organized a workshop to help creatives, artists and lobbyists think of new critical ideas for the sustainability of the arts in Zambia. Their views were also used in formulating Zambia’s National Arts Policy.
The workshop fell under Zambia’s Creative Industries Recovery Strategy (CIRS) and was organized by Hivos’ Resource of Open Minds (R.O.O.M.) program. It follows in the footsteps of the program’s New Ways of Working for Creatives, which looked at new pathways for creatives after the Covid-19 pandemic limited their activities.
This is the report from the workshop.
