Organisation Name:
Zimba Arts
Country:

Works with groups of artists in the high-density suburbs of Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital city, offering mentorship that helps to increase their skills and make their art accessible beyond the African market. In 2014, it expanded its collaboration and mentorship to include artists in Ongata Rongai, a peri-urban settlement on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya. Each Zimbabwean sculpture is made from scrap metal – oil drums, cars, washing machines, refrigerators and stoves – salvaged from the landfills in Harare. Wood artwork is made from the fast-growing Jacaranda tree, a multi-purpose wood obtained sustainably. Use of this wood helps to prevent forest degradation, reduces pressure on endangered hardwood species, secures future wood supplies
