KUWALA CREATIVES

Held by the Kuwala Creatives Talent Agency, the ‘Tiwale Talent Search’ provides a platform through which local artists can address critical social and development issues within Malawi, such as discrimination against those with albinism, governmental corruption and high rates of child marriage. The Tiwale Talent Search challenges creatives to engage with these issues through their work and selects thirty entries that are showcased during a mini-festival. A panel of esteemed judges and an online public vote result in the funding of ten pieces of work. This funding gives the creatives the ability to produce and display their work in physical and online formats that are distributed across the Kuwala Network.

Kuwala Creatives is a vibrant, comprehensive talent agency at the cutting edge of Malawi’s professional entertainment industry, representing a diverse pool of talent of every age, size, shape, color, and creed, including musicians, dancers, actors, videographers, comedians and more.
