National Gallery of Zimbabwe (NGZ) executive director Raphael Chikukwa has announced the confirmation of Silenkosi Moyo as the NGZ regional director in Bulawayo.
Moyo, who was the gallery’s administrator, was appointed acting regional director in August last year.
She took over after former regional director Butholezwe Kgosi Nyathi stepped down in July last year.
“We have a new director for NGZ in Bulawayo and she is Silenkosi Moyo. She was appointed on April 1,” said Chikukwa.
Upon her appointment as acting regional director last year, Moyo expressed her desire to reach out to women in arts and under-represented sections of society as part of efforts to promote inclusivity.
She has been in the arts and culture industry for 14 years and successfully ran programmes that promoted the under-represented sections of society.
Among the projects are the Girl Empowerment Programme through visual arts and Pink Perspectives, an exhibition that spoke to breast cancer issues.
