The Utopian Nights series provides a platform to re-imagine collectively four contemporary themes: displacement, borders, encampment and global commons. The catalyst of the series is the notion of Utopia. Here Utopia is essentially a democratic space – it is a platform for discussion and a participatory project in which everyone can debate, challenge and be challenged equally.

The next edition, Inside the Border, is a weeklong event that invites the public to engage with different artistic works.

You are invited to join us to build together a temporary museum, to watch original films under the trees of the garden, to attend an original moving performance in the streets of the Citta Notabile, and to have your portrait photo taken in Utopia! The week will culminate in a joyful social gathering, providing the poets, musicians, thinkers and public with an opportunity to take part in a common experience.

Utopian Nights: Inside the Border will be taking place at Howard Gardens in Mdina between the 30th July and 6th August 2018.

Participants may camp on site during this week. To book, follow this link:
