In the chaos that is Zimbabwe there exists an oasis. It is also chaotic but has a vision and is actually an inspiring place to work. It is the HIFA (Harare International Festival of the Arts) office and I’m a press officer, IT geek, gofer, whatever there. Yes, HIFA 2008 is going ahead despite all the obstacles! I’d mention the website if it was worth visiting but unfortunately it is nowhere near the standard of the printed programme which is a piéce de résistance. As an employee (actually I don’t get paid) I get free entry to the programme but this year I’d be hard pressed to choose what I want to see; it will probably be dictated to me anyway! Amazingly we have had very few cancellations because of the “situation” so it’s all go and looking like a great event.

The Festival runs the usual 6 days from 29th April to 5th May.
