Harare, Harare

Glass Ceilings is a theme dedicated towards barriers. A theme about obstacles, trials, setbacks, limitations, struggles, insurmountable odds, etc. This theme acknowledges the hardships encountered in our lives. Those barriers that have existed since time immemorial. The barriers that are rising up today and the barriers that are foreseeable in the near future. This theme looks at the barriers that we have managed to overcome, the barriers that we continue to soldier on against and the barriers that have been too gregarious for us to surpass as either individuals or as a society.
