‘Night of the Arts’ comes to Life

By Peter Tanyanyiwa
The annual Borrowdale Community Church BCC Young Adults organised "Night of the Arts" comes to life today, June 16 at the Borrowdale Community Church.
The event will comprise of musical performances, spoken word/poetry, dance, comic acts and much more.
Art fanatics are expected to fill up the Borrowdale Community Church venue and this year’s edition will be hosted by Kudzi Macheka and Kim Kambasha.
BCC Night of the Arts director Mufaro Chifamba said the Night of the Arts was created to give artists a platform to be able to tell their story of what God is doing in their lives and in the lives of those around them and most importantly glorify their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through their talents and abilities. He went on to say they had lined-up a number of activities to keep guests entertained at this year’s ‘Night of the Arts’ event and that the showcase is growing with each new edition.
“Night of the Arts came about as an initiative to provide a platform that demands that those whom God has gifted and talented step up to display what the lord has put in them for His glory. To enable artists to use their message to impact the lives of those around them.
“Basically we will have artists showcasing their God-given gifts through music, spoken word, dance and so on. The event is on from 18:30-21:00 and tickets are pegged at $1.
“Preparations have been going according to schedule and the team has been working extremely hard to get things ready for the event, I am really happy about the progress. The event which is on tonight will feature artists such as special guest artist and multi-award winning recording artist Prophecy together with Shabach Tha Band, Emmanuel “Wednesdaynight” Magumise, Christian Music Collective Team Revolution Music, Hey Hey Preacher and many more,” said Chifamba.
The initiative incorporates music, dance, spoken word and comedy and last year the highlight was the BCC Art showroom gallery where two artists exhibited two outstanding sets of artworks. The two artists were Ngatendwe Taruvinga and Tendai Mufunda.
