This special edition of Darba Waħda in collaboration with Esplora will take place at Esplora Interactive Science Centre in Bighi, Kalkara, from Tuesday 3rd July till Friday 6th July between 9am and 1pm.
‘Darba Waħda’ is an intergenerational project for children and elderly people with the aim of bringing together the wealth of information and experience of the elderly and the simplicity, youthfulness and creativity of children.
The project gives both elderly and young the opportunity to meet and connect through storytelling over a creative platform which includes drama, games, arts and crafts. Through these activities, the two generations have the opportunity to create, relate, exchange and learn, as they share stories and experiences while having fun together.
Darba Waħda is produced by the Valletta 2018 Foundation with the support of Esplora as well as a number of participating local councils, and forms part of the Valletta 2018 Cultural Programme.
