The 4rd National Citizens Convention (NCC) to be convened by Citizens’ Manifesto will be happening under the theme, “Let Art Speak.” The main thrust of the Convention is to give arts and creatives space to help us understand the challenges we face and seek inspiration towards seeking citizen-centric solutions. The rich program will be a combination of musical indabas, public lecture, ignite talks, and artistic performances by Zimbabwe’s leading creatives and artists. The event will be held as a combination of online and offline events with the main attractions being in  Zimbabwe’s two major cities, Harare and Bulawayo as well as online. Due to the pandemic, the event will have restricted physical attendance but with a deliberate design to make as many people as possible get involved online.
