November has many events in its arsenal. Summer usually carries the bulk of festivals and events that happen in Malta, due to the inviting weather and the influx of tourists it makes sense to have a lot of things happen during this period. But it doesn’t just end there, autumn carries with it a lot of events which you should definitely attend.
This festival aims to bring the creative arts in all its different shapes, forms and styles to children and young people. This is done through a plethora of different shows presented through different forms of art. ŻiguŻajg’s vision is to ‘position the creative arts for children and young people at the core of malta’s creative ecology’. They do this by nurturing audience development and crowd participation, while also establishing international networks and collaborate with strategic partners.
In 2019 the festival has been switched up a bit. In collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv, the festival will take place throughout an entire season filled with activities and artistic excellence.
The festival is aimed for children and families, while also inviting schools to bring along their students for a morning of fun, creativity and ultimately education.
Fondazzjoni Kreattivita’ organised ŻiguŻajg while also pushing and helping a lot in the contemporary art scene that is taking place in Malta.
