Arts Council Malta is organising an educational outreach programme in collaboration with with the curator and the artists of the Malta Pavilion of the Venice Art Biennale, according to a recent press statement. The Bank of Valletta (BOV) appears as a supporter of the outreach.
In the framework of the programme, children, sixth form students as well as University students of arts and literature in Malta and in Cyprus, will be participating in a set of creative workshops, to explore diverse human issues, challenging the norm, and finally producing their own works of art.
Workshops for sixth form students were launched on the 27th February and are being conducted by Professor Vince Briffa, one of the three artists of the Malta Pavilion, the BOV says in the press statement.
“We will move from seeing the act of drawing as the only means to produce the image of an object to one that becomes part of a thinking process, generating knowledge in the course of making images, oscillating between text and image,” says Mr Briffa.
“Bank of Valletta is always at the forefront of supporting Arts, Culture and Education, especially where this involves youths. What better way than to invest in the future of our country?” says Claudette Pace from Bank of Valletta.
The Venice Art Biennale is one of the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in the world, and Malta will once again be participating with its own Pavilion during the 58th edition of this international art exhibition.
