JCC to restart acts in January
Jacaranda Cultural Centre (JCC) in Blantyre restarts hosting performances in January next year.
JCC Director Luc Deschamps said the centre, which closed in March this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, was getting set for performances next year.
However, the centre, which already opened for French and Chichewa classes, Saturday afternoon hosted an art exhibition by Kungoni Arts Centre led by Father Claude Boucher— popularly known as Achisale.
“The opening of the art exhibition marks the beginning of performances restart these performances in January,” Deschamps said.
He then hailed Boucher, a renowned author, for participating in the art exhibition, which runs until January next year.
Themed ‘The Elephant Does Not Forget’, the exhibition features close to 50 wooden sculptures by artists from Kungoni Art Centre.
The exhibition addresses countless issues, including that of elections. This is a topical issue because Malawians went to the polls to elect State president on June 23 this year..
“It is worthwhile hosting this exhibition because the pieces tackle various issues, including that of the environment,” he said.
