Highlights include;

Zimbabwean society in the face of the highest inflation in the world,
rampant political violence and a humanitarian crisis.

freedom, and human rights through reggae and dance music will be performing.

Graphic facilitators Corrie Melanson and Janet Rhymes will facilitate a
world café process to open the conference using their unique visual tools.
The world café model invites participants to dialogue about a series of
provocative questions, such as, “What innovative approaches do you use to
engage the public in your work?”, and “What opportunities are emerging for
our work, in these times of economic recession?”
