Antoine Cassar
Poet, Translator, Editor and Cultural Organizer
Antoine Cassar is a Maltese poet, translator, editor, and cultural organiser, and a creative activist for migrants’ rights and universal freedom of movement.

Born in London to Maltese parents in 1978, Antoine grew up between England, Malta and Spain, and worked and studied in Italy, France and Luxembourg. In 2004, after a thirteen-year absence from the Maltese islands, he returned to Qrendi, the village of his family, to re-learn a language he had almost forgotten.

His reading and his presentation of the Passport Project at Between the Lines of the Mahalla Festival is dedicated to mobility and language.-
