10 months ago I attended a meeting Southern African Visual art festival at the UNWTO & Beyond:
visions for a Mosi-oa-Tunya Biennial at the world famous Victoria Falls

Mr Manjengwa (Zimbabwe tourism authority)  told us about the great opportunity available. A visual arts festival at the Victoria Falls. There would be tourists, hotels, a new airport runway. Each party could benefit, from the crafts people to the hotels to the taxi drives. “The cake is here”, he said, and continued to explain that it is a great opportunity for any organization to put a plan on the table for the Victoria Falls, and we would share the cake. His message was clear as daylight, a circus manifestation, football conference, diamond digging conference it all brings in the tourists.

Hmmm art for the grownups at the Mosi-oa-Tunya Biennale and for the kids a theme park…
