In collaborating on cultural initiatives with like-minded organisations across Malawi, ArtGlo has built strong relationships with artists and their supporters. We are, however, always looking for opportunities to broaden and deepen our relationships with individuals and organisations in Malawi's cultural sector. If you’re interested in partnering with us, please CONNECT.
In 2016 and 2018, ArtGlo brought our participatory, arts-based approach to the Festival of Ideas, an initiative hosted by Lake of Stars and the British Council Malawi. We engaged youth in discussions around civil society and development.
At Lake of Stars in 2016, we delivered a creative writing workshop and participatory storytelling sessions. In 2016, ArtGlo hosted at the Malambo Stage, showcasing performances from our Make Art / Stop AIDS Squads, poetry readings, and artist Q&As, among other things.
We delivered a livestream version of TEDx Lilongwe at the University of Malawi’s Chancellor College, cheering on ArtGlo’s very own Rodney Likaku – former Programme Officer for Students with Dreams – as he delivered a talk on youth leadership.
At the Tumaini Arts Festival in Dzaleka Refugee Camp, ArtGlo has facilitated a Hope Tree, screened social justice films, run an Umunthu workshop on inclusion, and hosted a photobooth.
At Pakachere Arts Festival in Zomba, ArtGlo screened Last Chance, a film by Chancy Mauluka that exposed the sexual abuse of girls in rural primary schools.
