The second edition of the Zimbabwe Arts and Culture directory will finally be unveiled after the timely intervention by the Spanish embassy and Culture Fund.

According to the Director of The Zimbabwe National Arts Council, Mr. Elvas Mari, the publication which was designed locally is a marketing tool which will afford local artists to assert authority within the industry.

“The 2011 directory is totally different from the 2006 edition with the layout being of top quality and it will link the artists and arts organisation to the international community,” said Mr. Mari.

The Zimbabwe Arts and Culture directory was first launched in 2006.

However, efforts to update it have been scuttled by shortage of resources until the Spanish Embassy chipped in with funds.
