The Foundation for Arts and Culture (FoAC) was established in 2012. It is registered under the Trustees Incorporation Act as a non-profit making Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). The overall objective of Foundation is to establish, develop and maintain an efficient and effective organization that promotes arts and culture and the interests of artists. It aims at contributing to the promotion, preservation and presentation of the country’s arts and culture through, among other things, training, raising funds and organizing conferences, seminars and festivals. It will also foster collaboration, cooperation and facilitation among players and stakeholders in the fields of arts and culture.
The Foundation has established a database to provide a pool of information on arts and culture in Malawi. It is hoped that the pool of information will facilitate networking and provide marketing opportunities for our cultural industries. Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in the database is as accurate as possible. The database will be constantly updated.The Foundation will always welcome comments and corrections.
The Foundation would like to express its thanks and gratitude to UNESCO for funding the project. It is also grateful to all those who assisted in the creation of the database by providing the information.
