The meeting hosted at the Gaborone International Convention Centre had company representatives and guests from different embassies located within the city who have been partners with the ministry in the past.

Makgalemele says the arts industry has a lot of potential, which they have set out to unearth through the competitions further adding that in order to do this effectively they need the support of the different organisations present. He said this year alone the value of the prizes to be given to the finalists is at P2.9 million since they are given monetary winnings.

“Participation has grown from 3,274 in 2008 to 14,280 in 2019,” Makgalemele said.  He pointed out this

Meanwhile, the British Council made the audience privy to the initiatives tailored for people in the performing arts industry in Southern Africa.
