Music Crossroads Malawi on Monday commemorated the International Youth Day in style with arts performances at its headquarters in Area 23, Lilongwe.
From musical performances to dance, poetry and theatre the youth showcased their skills at an event Music Crossroads organised in conjunction with the Public Affairs Section of the US Embassy.
“The day is important to gather youths and talk about issues affecting them. Through the expressive arts, the youth jointly showcased their talents. We would not let the day just pass by yet we say the youth are leaders of tomorrow,” explained Music Crossroads director Mathews Mfune.
He added that the function was in solidarity with government which is working on establishing a youth policy.
“It would be unfortunate to let the day go by without celebrations considering that government is actually working on putting in place a policy for the youth. That is why we had bands of different age ranges because we believe music crossroads is a platform that can grow talent.”
Malawi President Joyce Banda in a similar event Monday afternoon unveiled the National Youth Policy.
