This was the message yesterday during a short press briefing at Studio 77 on the activities for this month.
“Through the Bank Windhoek Arts Festival, Bank Windhoek created a platform for arts in Namibia. Therefore, Bank Windhoek will continue to promote quality arts in Namibia through the Bank Windhoek Arts Festival in 2008,” said Michelle Oppel-Schmidt, communication practitioner of Bank Windhoek.
