About Intwasa

Founded in 2005 and a highlight of Bulawayo’s cultural calendar, Intwasa is one of the longest running multidisciplinary arts festival in Zimbabwe. The festival takes place every September in various venues in Bulawayo’s central business district and offers a diverse programme that includes theatre, dance, music, spoken word, visual arts, literary arts and fashion.

Intwasa is an isiNdebele word meaning spring, which is when the festival is held. Spring signifies rebirth, regrowth, rejuvenation and renewal. The ideas of rebirth and renewal permeate the festival providing festival-goers with memories to carry them through to the next edition.

The festival, a feast of entertainment rooted in the heart of what is known as Zimbabwe’s most creative city, is about bringing people together and celebrating human diversity and creativity. It encourages bold, thought-provoking ideas and brave performances.

With the venues being central, it is safe and easy to walk from one venue to another. The City Hall Car Park remains the hub of the festival, with most events being free of charge, with something to appeal to everyone.
