The Istanbul based association DIYALOG in collaboration with the African Media Association Malta and the Sustainable Design Collectiv Malta are organizing the new Mahalla Festival in Malta dedicated to migration, exile and inclusion. The festival will take place November 18 until 25 in Valletta.
The upcoming festival will give the opportunity to update the network of European cultural initiatives working in the field of migration, exile and cultural identity. 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.
Different artistic positions and cultural initiatives (Fine Arts, Literature, Film, Music, Theater) will be introduced and combined to form new narratives regarding mobility, culture and identity. The festival consists of workshops, lectures, performances, exhibition and concerts taking place in Valletta.
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 Mediterranean and the inclusion of these cultures even in communities with nationalistic attitudes as observed right now not only in some Eastern European countries.
For the period of three month and up to six month we are looking for an intern who wants to be involved in all aspects of organizing a cultural event taking place with the participation of third country nationals who just arrived and local communities in Malta.
Please contact us if you are interested doing an internship with an incultural association focussing on migration, exile and inclusion.

The Wandering Tower is the title of a surrealist short story by Sergej Prokofiev from the times of vivid migration movements on the edge of the world wars.
The Festival was quoting the title as a metaphorical frame for Mahalla 2020/2021. The tower of Babel is connected as a motive to the search for the origin of language and the access to the divine.
