ZiguZajg – Kids & Youth Arts Festival Malta 2011

 The first international children's festival will be held in Malta between the 14th and 20th November 2011 in different venues in Valletta. The performances are targeting an audience of children and youth from newborn children to 15 year olds.

 

The festival is under the patronage of the Prime Minster, Dr Lawrence Gonzi and the organisation is entrusted to St James Cavalier, Centre for Creativity. The aim of the festival is to showcase the performing arts in their various disciplines, specifically designed for children, at a level of excellence. The target outcome is to deliver artistic excellence within a fun and engaging context.

This festival showcases 20 different companies giving over 100 performances and workshops targeting an audience of 20,000. The lineup of performing companies hail from Scotland, England, France, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Malta.

All performances are open to the public for free.

The festival website will be up and running in the coming days: http://www.ziguzajg.org/. Adverts, banners, web banners, Facebook, etc will be out shortly.

Shops Participation

The shops project consists of 22 students from MCAST Art and Design in an advanced stage of training, who will be working in partners on shop displays. The aim is to do up the shop windows using the materials that the shops sell, so as to promote the materials but also produce a creative display. GRTU urges shop ownwers to participate. Anyone interested is invited to call on 21 232881 and ask for Ms Carmen Borg or email on by not later than Tuesday 1st November 2011.

Besides travelling to various venues around Valletta, audiences will also be gathering close to City Gate for the Street Art Project and close to St George's Square for the multi sensory installation. There will also be four flash mobs on Saturday and four on Sunday taking place in Republic Street and Market Street, along with a creative culinary project at City Pro Cafe in Market Street.

Hope this information gives a clearer idea of what is happening in the streets and the festival in general between the 14th and the 20th November 2011.
