A significant change in home-based care for the elderly has taken place on the Maltese Islands over the past decades through the employment of Filipino carers and helpers. This project explores the stories of Filipino caretakers and their employers, whilst illustrating the power that art can have in passing on a political message to the public.
An art exhibition led by artists Aglaïa Haritz and Abdelaziz Zerrou highlights the experiences collected throughout the project, which are also set to be published in 2018. By gathering the stories of vulnerable groups on the Islands, Exiled Homes brings out the differences and similarities between the lives of Maltese and Filipino people, fostering tolerance and intercultural collaboration.
The exhibition will be held at The Mill – Art, Culture and Crafts Centre in Birkirkara and opens on the 20th June. The exhibition is open to the public from the 22nd June to the 13th July and is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Details in the poster below:
