Nomsa Mazwai Receives the Prince of Asturius Award in Spain

Nomsa Mazwai's  greatness continues to splendour through her work and excellent demeanour. The young South African is currently in Europe under the Fulbright program.

The Fulbright program has been awarded the Prince of Asturius Award for International Cooperation (the Spanish version of the Nobel prize) and Nomsa Mazwai was selected from over 360 000 Fullbrights, to accept the award with 4 other international Fulbright Alumni.

The awards were given by the King of Spain in a ceremony held in Oviedo Spain. 
Nomsa is the 2nd South African to receive this award after former president Nelson Mandela.

Robert Pittman is currently filming a documentary on the Fulbright Scholars selected to receive the award.

Ms Mazwai's next stop is Newcastle where she will be in residence with creator of the National Arts Festival, Ismail Mohammed. The residency is arranged by the swallows foundation and coincides with the Afro Vibes festival taking place in the same city.

Here are some photos taken at the event:
