We wish you a serene passing of the years, and take the occasion to express our gratitude to all those who were part of or supported our works and projects in 2017.
We collected some ideas and concepts for a Mahalla festival 2018.
After several discussions we decided to organize the festival next year in Malta.
The location of the Maltese island between Italy and Africa where most refugees are passing the Mediterranean on the way to Europe is a reason for our decision. So one focus will be Africa/North-Africa.
The upcoming festival will give the opportunity to update the network of European cultural initiatives working in the field of migration, exile and inclusion. It will bring together native communities and newcomers. The festival will be also a platform with concrete results how these initiatives and cultural mediators want to operate in Europe and beyond in future.
With the sincere wish that our paths will cross in 2018 again.
