The Malta Society of Arts (MSA) project Artistic Multi Sensorial Experience (AMuSE) has launched its final exhibition of artworks open until 31 October at Palazzo de La Salle in Valletta with free entrance, according to a press statement issued by the Maltese government’s Department of Information (DOI).
The project was launched in 2017 and it is the first Creative Europe project ever to be selected for cofunding by the European Commission, the DOI press statement says.
The MSA leads this project together with three European partner institutions, the Associazione Le Terre dei Savoia in Italy, Hanze University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands and Dusetos Cultural Centre in Lithuania. It is the first time that a Maltese organisation represents the leading partner in a Creative Europe project.
In addition, the artistic works presented in Malta were created during a section of programmes which took place in the institutions of the partner countries. The collaboration with foreign countries gave an international dimension to MSA and to the island of Malta, MSA’s President Adrian Mamo said.
“Through AMuSE, the MSA has given an opportunity to young local artists to create work, travel and collaborate with their European counterparts and has given a platform to all the participating artists from the partner countries to create work within their local communities,” said Joe Scerri, AMuSE’s project leader and the manager of the MSA.
“We are further strengthening cultural platforms for the benefit of professionals within the artistic sphere through initiatives and opportunities. AMuSE will definitely serve as a showcase for local cultural organisations and entities, to encourage them to engage as leading partners in future Creative Europe projects,” said Owen Bonnici, Minister for Justice, Culture and Local Government, who attended the project’s launch, according to the DOI press statement.
