Laura Schuerwegen’s journey to establishing an arts festival in Malawi has been filled with challenges, but her passion for the arts has driven her forward. Despite facing limited public support, she was able to create the Zomba City Arts Festival which recently marked its fourth anniversary.

The festival has become a significant cultural event in Malawi, showcasing local and international talent across various art forms. From music to visual arts, the Zomba City Arts Festival provides a platform for artists to showcase their work and engage with the community.

Schuerwegen’s commitment to the festival’s success has been unwavering, and her dedication to promoting the arts in Malawi has not gone unnoticed. With each passing year, the festival continues to grow and attract more participants and attendees.
