WCC Creative Skills trainer Michael Mutisunge Phoya talks about the value of the programme for Africa
"The need for training/internationalisation of Malawi’s arts cannot be overstated. One of the challenges we face is a lack of understanding of concepts underpinning the heritage industries on the global stage. The workshops will not only help us assess our current positions but also how we can position ourselves favourably on the global market." - Michael Mutisunge Phoya
