VUSA MAKOKOBA PAINTED PROJECT
the oldest district of Bulawayo
Boosting the african urban culture through the rebirth of an african district
We think that this typical old african district can attract not only all people interested in the local way of urban african life but can also be born again and the heart of local culture and activities.
REPAINTING THE FRONT OF THE HOUSES
By mean of a competition
10 artists of the National Gallery, would paint the front sides of 20 houses.
Each house is about 3,5m wide.
The painting would be meaningful, involving the people leaving in the house and their history.
A jury will select the two best artists.
These two artists would paint a big wall at Makokoba Beer Garden, the Big Bawa, the biggest beer garden in Africa.
They will also get prizes, donation from different sponsors in town.
