Sula project in second cohort

FOR GROWTH—Some of the visual artists participants working on their artworks

University of Malawi (Unima), through Department of Fine and Performing Arts, on Monday started a one-week training for creatives in different disciplines through its Sula Professional Development for the second cohort in Zomba.

The second cohort of training has attracted those in photography, theatre, visual arts cinematography and arts journalists.

Unima is spearheading Sula project in partnership with Sound Connects Fund implemented by Music in Africa and other players.

“We have been longing for such trainings for a long time for the growth of the creative sector. The two days we have been here have been wonderful and we are looking forward to more,” Maxwell Chiphinga popularly known as Max DC, who is among the participants, said.

Apart from engaging in other lessons, the creatives are learning arts entrepreneurship.

Coordinator of the project and Head of Department of Fine and Performing Arts Catherine Makhumula-Mtimuni said recently that Sula is a project that is there to develop the creative sector.

The second cohort of the training ends on Friday and will see creatives exhibiting their works.
