Elderly people have a wealth of information and experience that makes them valuable members of our communities. Children, on the other hand, in their simplicity and youthfulness, are inspirational.
Darba Waħda is an intergenerational project giving the two generations the opportunity to meet over a creative platform. Through various creative methods including drama, games and exercises, arts and crafts, storytelling and improvisations, the two generations have the opportunity to relate, to share, to exchange, to learn and to create… and most of all have fun together. This project explores this relationship and creates a bridge between the two generations.
Coordinated by applied drama practitioner Anna Formosa, the project is being produced by the Valletta 2018 Foundation with the support of a number of participating local councils.
