Awareness Through the Arts
KGVI has a strong arts programme including drama, dance, music, singing, poetry and painting
- KGVI has a strong arts programme including drama, dance, music, singing, poetry and painting. Many of our students are skilled in at least one of these disciplines and with training become professional performers.
- From our arts programme sprang the successful Liyana Band which toured in both Europe and the States. The films Music by Prudence and iThemba were both made about the band members. The success and fame of this band has had a bigger impact on disability awareness in Zimbabwe than any other advocacy programme.
- Our deaf dance/drama performers have twice won the main prize in a Southern African competition known as Zwakala held in South Africa
- Our public performances with deaf dancers and actors, disabled singers and musicians carry a strong message – it is difficult to reject someone who has just entertained you on a public stage.
