Crossing Places - Valletta SENSI
Four artists from Thessaloniki in Greece and two from Catania arrived on Wednesday 11 July to take part in the “Valletta SENSI” Workshop and Performance project which is part of the "Crossing Places - Al Buio" international project part-funded by the Culture 2000 programme of the EU and led by ARCI in Italy. The visit ended with a collective performance on Monday 17 July at 8.00pm at the Auberge d'Italie in Valletta. (Photo by Adrian Grima)
A series of five workshops in different spaces in Valletta were inspired by
the experience of visually impaired people from Greece and Malta who were
the protagonists of this week of events. "Not being able to see is not a
misfortune but can be an asset, in the sense that blindness is a different
way of seeing and expressing things and the world."
The Valletta SENSI project was coordinated by Inizjamed with support from the Ministry of Tourism and Culture and the St. James Cavalier Centre for Creativity.
The performance and multi-sensory experience was then performed by the artists from the three participating countries at the Mercati Generali in Catania on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 July.
