Description

Zimbabwean Cultural Centre of Detroit (ZCCD) has been founded for and by artists living in Zimbabwe and outside its borders. The organization serves to dismantle naturally occurring as well as constructed boundaries, both physical and otherwise with a view to promote community with the global and local in mind. Working of two domestic spaces that we have re-imaged as cultural consulates, one situated in Detroit, U.S.A. and the other is in Harare, Zimbabwe. Recognizing our role as cultural ambassadors we endeavor to foster a culture of research, dialogue, and production across geographic boundaries of Detroit, Michigan and Zimbabwe. We acknowledge the current situation of economic crisis and a range of social issues that individuals in both these spaces grapple with. Our goal is to encourage ties between culture producers and residents in both Zimbabwe and Detroit acting as catalysts for critical artistic production as well as cultural exchange between these two diverse communities.
