We are delighted to welcome welcome Silvanos Muzvova to the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures at The University of Manchester.

Silvanos Mudzvova is a Zimbabwean playwright, theatre director, filmmaker and activist. Through a range of different creative strategies, he has for several years been involved in the struggle for greater democracy and for LGBT rights in his home country.

During 2017, Silvanos is based at The University of Manchester, as part of a year-long residency facilitated by the Artist Protection Fund, a programme of the New York-based Institute of International Education.

Join him at his talk on Thursday 9 March, 6pm (Martin Harris Centre), where Silvanos will present an informal, illustrated talk about his work, and about the Zimbabwean contexts it has responded to.
