THE ARTS ASSOCIATION HERITAGE TRUST PRESENTS FRANS UUNONA THE YOUNG MAN’S HE[ART] EXHIBITION
Venue: Omba Gallery at the Craft Centre
Frans Uunona was born in 1990 in the small village of Oshikushahipya, near Oshakati in Namibia. At age four he visited a home filled with works of art which left a lasting impression on him,and from that moment on, the artist in him was born.
A talented draftsmen and graduate of the College of the Arts, Frans is one of Namibia’s promising and upcoming artists.
Partnered with his natural gift of drawing, Frans expresses his deepest emotions through visual imagery and sees art as his closest companion which has helped guide him through emotional confusion and moments of melancholy. It is in the cubist works of renowned artist, Pablo Picasso, that Frans Uunona finds solace and stimulus, amongst various other modernist artists.

COMEDIAN CARL JOSHUA NCUBE AT THE LOFT
Venue: The Loft at Warehouse Theatre
Zimbabwean Comedian Carl Joshua Ncube is back in Windhoek
A few years ago during the /Ae //Gams Festival, a Zimbabwean stand-up Comedian came to perform at the Warehouse Theatre with Free Your Mind and almost brought the house down. Now he is back in Namibia for one night only at The Loft.
Ncube is described by CNN as “the new face of Zimbabwean comedy” and by Comedy Central Africa as “probably the funniest comedian to come out of Zimbabwe”.
This maverick comedian, who is on a world tour, will be performing on the 27th of April at The Loft and you absolutely need to be there. Carl Joshua Ncube is currently on an EXILE tour around the world and is currently visiting NAMIBIA to tell his story about Zimbabwe to the world.
