ZVISHAVANE - The youth expo which is to be held on October 27 at the Kandodo Hall has seen the Zvishavane Youth Centre (ZYC) working closely with more young people so as to produce quality products that will be showcased at the event.
ZYC facilitator Clifford Mugiya said his organisation wanted to exhibit the best of what the youth in the district can produce.
"The youth expo is a day when the talent of our young people will be on show for all to see. The day will be very important since the youth will discover themselves, with parents discovering their children," said Mugiya.
He said ZYC was expanding its operations in the community by creating art clubs in different schools in the district.
"As the one and only organisation which believes in talent scouting and youth development in the district, ZYC is growing bigger each day and we have 76 students from different schools in the district and 30 youths from the community who have joined our art clubs.
"ZYC gallery is a resource centre for history, heritage and religious studies. Youths come and practice playing marimba, mbira, writing and reciting poems and speeches on different subjects. It should be noted that the environment is our main theme from where we draw inspiration so we want to conserve it," said Mugiya
On the same note, ZYC coordinator Bigboy Murenga said the centre was working with the Midlands State University (MSU) Department of Arts and Theatre in preparation for the day.
He said the high number of young people in their art clubs showed that the community had come to understand the mission of ZYC.local
