MIAF started off 6 years ago by Poetavango as a spoken word festival  but now embraces  theatre, dance , music , poetry, comedy, literature and the visual arts as part of its array of disciplines.

This year’s edition is special because it occurs in the same year that Botswana turns 50. The theme for this year then is quite fittingly and perfectly ordinary for it to be 50 more years. Would be rather awkward if it wasn’t to be honest.

Willis will share the stage with artists from USA, Hungary, South Africa, Bulgaria, Namibia, Lesotho, Kenya, Uganda and  Ghana.

This will be his first performance in Botswana. After his return to prepare for the Clothing Indaba as well tours to Nigeria and Dubai among others.
