OUR STORY

Strength and Power in Numbers

Our name, Simba, is a Shona word from a vernacular language of the Bantu people of Zimbabwe and other parts of Africa, which translates as strength. The organization draws from its name, its ethos, and values of strength and oneness in numbers. 

Simba Λrts is a Norwegian Zimbabwean registered non-profit umbrella organisation, and a dream brought out of the love for arts and artists. At the core of its existence is the push for a society where cultural and creative industries are reckoned for their contributions to the economy, reducing inequalities and fostering unity in society.
