Artists urged to employ digital spaces

National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) has impelled players in the arts sector to utilize digital alternatives in reaching out the general public.

This comes after the Ministry of Health and Child Care outlined the renewed measures to curb surging COVID-19 cases and artists have been advised to adhere to the suspension of arts public performances.

In a statement NACZ Acting Director, Josia Kusena said the suspension which runs from Monday 14 June 2021 until further notice, signals the deferment of events that appeal to the general public to attend for the consumption of cultural goods and services offered by the sectors.

All events which attract public gatherings are therefore suspended.

“However, day to day office work by artists for continued production and creation of new arts shall align to the 8 am to the 6 pm work routines as enunciated in the new COVID-19 containment regulations.

“NACZ, therefore, encourages all the arts sector players to comply and give maximum support to the government and national efforts to contain the COVID19 third wave currently on the rise in our nation,” Kusena said.
