Skills, knowledge and experience in photography, painting, illustration, graphic design, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, textile decorations and print acquired overtime allowed the upcoming artist to come up with the theme “The Creative Hand”. For this exhibition, Simbarashe was inspired by Marcel Duchamp to come up with some of the artworks on exhibition. He was also inspired by artists of the impressionism era to come up with some of his paintings.

In the words of Simbabrashe in his artist statement, “The creative hand has no boundaries that limit it from exploring all aspects of day to day life. It is my great pleasure that today is the day the community will tour and enjoy the products of the creative hand. The Creative Hand brought you sorrow, happiness and amazement and this is exactly what art is all about”.

Entertainment was provided by artists from the centre playing traditional instruments.
