YOUTH-LED arts organisation Inkatha Qreative Arts from Bulawayo has embarked on a journey to promote up-and-coming talents to enable them to fulfil their dreams.
The arts organisation houses various forms of talent ranging from musicians, writers, photographers, visual artists and filmmakers.
Inkatha Qreative Arts founder and director Brian Ncube told NewsDay Life & Style that their aim was to uplift youths in arts through affording them free services and knowledge to grow their craft.
“Our main focus has been music and we managed to host our first show in February called Xplosiv Konexions that was designed for young up-and-coming artists to gain exposure through performances,” he said.
“We have worked with artists like Mandie, Scattah Wattah, Ranks Mae and Fab G in the past and we have a new crop of artists like Izzy who is dropping a music video on October 20 and we will be launching works of others before year end.”
Ncube said they had workshops lined up on financial literacy and social media management for artists and bloggers scheduled to begin this November.
“As Inkatha Qreative Arts we have a farming project in the pipeline, as we want to create a self-sustaining arts organisation and a financial backbone for our arts operations through agriculture, taking advantage of the government policy on youths in farming,” he said.
