Held by the Kuwala Creatives talent agency, the ‘Tiwale Talent Search’ will provide 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 thirty entries will be showcased during a mini-festival. A panel of esteemed judges and an online public vote will result in ten pieces of work being funded through to full online and physical production and 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, colour and creed, including musicians, dancers, actors, videographers, comedians and more.
