Hello Art Lovers! 
I hope you find my work inspiring, and that it challenges you and that it brings you joy. 

I have been offered a residency at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe and I need your help to fully seize this opportunity.

I want to use this important moment in my art practice to cultivate local talents and facilitate a rich exchange of artistic ideas.

With all my heart I believe in the power art has and any contribution you may provide will go directly toward facilitating my participation in this residency, ensuring that my art continues to challenge, inspire, and facilitate conversations on a global scale.

Your support will help take this project beyond an exhibition but also make a conference and art prize feasible.

Sibone Okunye Symposium 30 November 2023

Our one-day conference is the nucleus of this initiative, bringing together local and regional talents to delve deep into the theme. However, we need your support to elevate this vision.

Your contribution will make it feasible for distinguished speakers to travel, ensuring the richness of discourse. Moreover, it will open doors for local artists and academics to attend, enabling their valuable participation. With enough support, we'll encapsulate the essence of the symposium in a publication, giving permanence to our collective insights.


Byo Artists Prize

We're introducing an art prize, inviting local artists to interpret and represent our theme. This is more than just a contest; it's a chance to nurture, highlight, and support the burgeoning talents of Bulawayo. By backing this exhibition, you're not just supporting art; you're fostering an entire community, allowing for a lasting legacy that transcends the walls of a gallery. Join us in shaping a brighter, more diverse artistic future. Embrace the vision, see something else.

Thank you for your generous support! 

We don’t have any products to show here right now.
