The National Institute of Allied Arts is a well-known institute that has been active in Zimbabwe for more than 100 years.  In the past few years, following the COVID-19 pandemic, our interaction with schools has seen huge growth.  More and more schools from around the country have entered the four Festivals held throughout each year and we are grateful for the dedication and support of teachers, parents and students.  We are also continually grateful for the support of our corporate partners, which allows us to offer a platform for students to participate in their chosen field, be it music, theatre, creative writing or art.
