The short of it:
The Gabriel Caruana Foundation, in collaboration with PAF (Project Aegle Foundation) is organising a four-day workshop at The Mill with the aim of introducing children to the art of papier-mâché, artivism and pedestrian rights.

We’ll be mixing the craft of papier-mâché with an ongoing need to reclaim public space, with a peppering of activism and a good measure of creativity!
The Mill will open its doors to 15 participants where they will be introduced to papier-mâché, artivism, carnival and Maltese Modern artists. We will engage with participants to air and sketch their views on sustainable mobility, pedestrian rights and solutions to everyday problems encountered whilst walking. Each participant will express themselves by creating a papier-mâché mask or sculpture. We will finish off the workshop with a mini parade together with parents along the street.
This carnival workshop is part of a wider process that the Gabriel Caruana Foundation is undertaking where we are exploring the links of art and cultural heritage.
Workshop locations: The Mill - Art, Culture and Crafts Centre, Birkirkara
Workshop dates: 8th, 15th, 22nd and 25th February
Workshop fee: €24 per participant includes 4 sessions and materials.
The workshop fee will contribute towards fundraising initiatives of both the Gabriel Caruana Foundation and the PAF.
The Gabriel Caruana Foundation is a non-profit making organisation registered with the Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations with registration number VO1236.
