‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’ exhibition is here


The exhibition titled The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind opens tomorrow at Jacaranda Cultural Centre (FCC) in Blantyre.

The exhibition was expected to be held in February after its launch at The Chocolate Factory in Zomba but it was shifted to March 6 before changing the date to end this month.

One of the visual artists who is part of the exhibition Madalitso Ziwaoh said Thursday they were ready to give people the best of paintings telling the story of innovator William Kamkwamba.


“We have been creating during this period we were on break and we believe we are ready to give people something worth appreciating and learning from. We have stories that need to be told and this is why we have this exhibition,” Ziwaoh said.

Apart from Ziwaoh, some of the artists set to exhibit their works are Samuel Ndalema and Charles Levison.

The other artists are Andrew Missi and Thandi Mjima.


“During the launch, people will also have a chance of sampling live painting sessions and we also have art lessons for children. The artworks which the children will produce will be taken to Kasungu to inspire other children,” he said.

The Balaka-based artist who has exhibited in a number of platforms said the addition of art lessons for children just shows that they are trying to change the way exhibitions are held.

The exhibition runs from tomorrow to April 24 2021.

Ziwaoh returns to JCC having previously done another exhibition on a different theme.
