Science in the City – Valletta – 28th September


The Malta Council for Science and
Technology will be participating in this year's Researchers' Night activities
which will be held in Valletta on Friday 28th September from 6pm onwards.
All Valletta will be transformed by
Science in the City, Malta's first science and art festival, as part of the pan
European event – Researchers' Night. Dances, music, exhibitions, comedy and
more will run from St. James Cavalier, through Valletta's streets and end in
St. George's Square.

The Council will be transforming the
car park of the Central Bank of Malta (at Castille Square) into a Science
FunFair with colourful tents. Animators will be assisting young visitors with
various science exhibits. A series of 45 minutes live science shows will be
presented by Professor Ċelli on the hour between 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm.

In St. James Cavalier, the science
and art exhibition called 'How?' (Adrian Abela, Elisa Von Brockdorff, Matthew
Farrugia, Michael Xuereb, Raphael Vella, Sarah Scicluna and the rubberbodies
collective) explores different scientific phenomena through an artistic lens,
while Tricia Dawn Williams' piano recital touches mathematics and music, there
will also be talks about the health properties of local honey, and even more
activities.

Auberge D'Italie will feature a kids'
area with 3D models, a play and other fun events. While the streets of Valletta
will be transformed with street art from Emmanuel Bonnici's doughnut shaped bus
called 'Joyride' to Raphael Vella's brain sculpture called 'Cortex'.

The star event is in St. George's
Square with a live science show, hosted by Pawlu Borg Bonnaci and Angie Laus
taking the audience, through laughs, experiments, dance, and entertainment for
the whole family. Palazzo Ferreria will host Italian musicians performing
L'Ultima Regola del Gioco co-ordinated by the Malta Association Of Contemporary
Music. While a carnival-style parade of Maskri Grotteski, also inspired by
science and scientists, will unite all of these locations.

Other entertaining events will be
going on throughout Valletta. For more information and a full programme
