  • High standard: At the last Art-in-the-Park, we took measures to raise the standard of the art displayed, so that visitors to the coming AITP would be pleased and want to buy more of the art on display. That approach was successful. So, for this coming AITP in May, again a group of judges will review the submissions from each artist. The judges will select only those of high enough standard. Note that the judges expect a higher standard than the last AITP. So be aware the competition is getting steeper and some artists may not be successful for this AITP.


  • We will consider those who are original, not copying from your fellow artists neither those who copy on internet. Prove that you have your own style.


  • You will be told whether you have been selected by 10th March. Any unsuccessful artist, if she or he wishes, can request some feedback so that improvements may be made before the next AITP.

  • The organizers of Art in the Park, WESM and Four Seasons, will be holding a first-ever Craft in the Park (CITP) event on the weekend of 3rd and 4th June this year, a month after AITP. CITP will be a showcase for the best of Malawi’s crafts.

  • CITP will be different from AITP because it will include crafts only, for example painters and photographers would not be included. Also, some of the exhibiters will be craft-selling businesses rather than the artisans that they employ to make the crafts. CITP will be like a trade show, but with selling to visitors included.

  • Also, CITP will be different from the monthly Lilongwe Farmers Market as we will be selecting who can display crafts at the event.

  • Note that artists that make crafts who have applied to take part in AITP – like wood carvers, sculptors and textile artists – may also apply for displaying their work at CITP. But note that AITP and CITP will be different in a number of ways.

  • Please contact CITP on +265 888 286 933 if more information is required.
