Women, Wine and Words Festival was held in Harare for the first time on the 17th of November 2018 at Theatre in The Park. I had the honor of being one of the three panelists at this event and spoke on the topic of Body Positivity. All three of us put together were a recipe for censored content, we didn’t mince our words and kept it real.
I noticed that the venue had been repainted. A job well done to the guys who took the time to make this place captivating. You can read all about their reason for doing so over here. The colours they used were made for perfect selfies, I took more than enough of them.
I met different women in the creative industry who are making a positive impact to the community. I enjoyed every bit of this event because women had a platform to express themselves and touch on different topics and talk about them at length without feeling judged. There’s nothing as refreshing as talking about something the next person can relate to. Think hair politics, body issues, what the media industry is like for women and everything in-between. We need more of this please!
“The show; a full on celebration of creative women through music, poetry, theatre and art, has been staged at the Intwasa festival for the past five years and has been a hit among festival goers. This event has clearly been admired by Harare’s leading theatre venue – Theatre in the Park through Rooftop Promotions who have partnered with Intwasa to stage the show in Harare.” – Chronicle
