 Art Camp Malta (Gozo) 2017

The Maltese National Commission for UNESCO and UNESCO’s Associated Schools National Coordination, in collaboration with the Andorran National Commission for UNESCO are happy to announce that the second edition of Art Camp Malta will be held between the 7th and the 20th May 2017. This edition will also be organised in full collaboration with the Cultural Programme of Malta’s Presidency of the European Union (January – June 2017).

 

More Information

The aim of this project is not only to create a showcase of original and truly creative works of art, but also to reinforce the principal values embraced by UNESCO i.e. the sustainability of Peace and the protection and promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expression. 

As Madame Irina Bokova rightfully referred to Art Camp: ”It is a very concrete and accessible way to nurture and educate young generations towards intercultural skills and dialogue. Art has the power to speak to the heart of people without the distinction of origins, language, sex and beliefs.”

The first edition of Art Camp which was held on the Islands of Malta and Gozo in October 2015 was a successful event, which saw the participation of over 20 artists from as many countries. 

Art Camp 2017 which will be held on the beautiful Island of Gozo, will once again be patronised by UNESCO’s Artist Ambassador for Peace Mme. Hedva Ser as godmother. Art Camp will be spread over a period of ten days and as for participation costs, participating artists will only be asked to pay their travelling costs to and from Malta. All other expenses will be borne by the organisation handling the event. A full programme will be forwarded shortly during the initial weeks of 2017. Malta forms part of the Schengen area, and nationals from non-EU countries should enquire with their respective embassies to member countries on the requirement or otherwise of a visa to enter and leave the Schengen area.

The application form has to be filled in by the artist and forwarded to the Maltese National Commission for UNESCO, by end of February 2017.
