Valletta 2018 and Darba Waħda… are proud to announce that registrations for sessions which will bring children and the elderly together is now open. Children and elderly are invited to participate on a number of fun-activities including storytelling, drama, art and games.
The free sessions are led by applied drama practitioner Anna Formosa and will be running from the beginning of October to December. Throughout the sessions participants learn from each other, exercise their creativity, develop new skills, experience self-development and have fun in a safe, creative environment.
