From this group, five Mozambican artists will benefit in the coming months from this incentive to participate in training and, or artistic exchange projects in the fields of music, theatre and dance. They are: Venâncio Bande Júnior, Stephen Philip Chissano and Afonso Manuel Vicente (music); João Baptista Nguenha (theatre) and Bernardo Fernando Guiamba, (Pak Ndjamena).
