Reflections photo exhibition

A picture exhibition, inspired by the need to achieve truth, reconciliation and national healing, was launched in Harare on March 24, 2010 by the Honorable Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai at The Gallery Delta. The exhibition, titled "Reflections", has 65 photographs relating the story of Zimbabwe from the foiled Save Zimbabwe Campaign Prayer Meeting on March 11, 2007 to the formation of the Government of National Unity (GNU).

During preparations for the Harare launch, ZimRights National Director, Okay Machisa, was arrested and the pictures taken by the police. They were only released after a high court order was filed by the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR).

The launch was held successfully in Bulawayo and Mutare. However, in Masvingo, the police disrupted the programme and impounded the pictures. To date, the pictures are in police custody. Launches in Gweru and Chinhoyi proceeded without the pictures.

Article VII Voices For Healing

ZimRights took a play titled "Heal the wounds" by Rooftop promotions to all ten provinces in the country. The play spoke to the National Healing Process which is underway and invoked debate on the direction the process should take. After the meetings, people discussed who should lead the process, how far back it should focus and whether or not the process should be centralised. These discussions were recorded and a documentary entitled "Article VII Voices for Healing" was produced. The documentary was screened in Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru, Mutare and Masvingo, where people emhpasised on the need for the process to be more people based and driven rather than having politicians to lead.
