Malta Land of Sea

27 Feb


At present the exhibition Malta Land of Sea is taking place at BOZAR in Brussel. This event is part of the Cultural calendar of Malta’s Presidency to the EU. Malta Land of Sea showcases the rich cultural diversity and cultural heritage of the Islands in the middle of the Mediterranean, and illustrates the complex dialogue between land and sea. If you are in Brussels go and see it. The visit might possibly trigger you to visit Malta because of its rich culture and its specific place in the Mediterranean sea.

I was honoured to write with Paul Dujardin a more cultural policy orientated article about Malta for the catalogue. We moved to Malta about 17 months ago and realised that a lot was going on here.  In ‘A Fresh Maltese Breeze‘ I tried to pin down the current cultural dynamics one recognises when visiting the the Maltese Islands today.

I’m currently working on 2 articles

  • one on What happens when you combine digital storytelling and cultural mapping in a social setting. The paper is based on the project Jefke Tuf – a transmedia project in Winterslag which is coming at an end in September. This is the proposal that has been accepted for the conference mentioned below.

The paper and the project will presented at the Conference on Cultural Mapping: Debating Spaces and Places that will take place in Valletta at the end of October

  • and one in Dutch on interdisciplinair trajectories in higher arts education ( Interdisciplinaire trajecten in het hoger kunstvakonderwijs)
