The Windrose Project

Research; Multi-site, Oral-lore, Winds
2015-2017

A multiple site research linking four geographical points around the islands of Malta and Gozo. These compass points became the focus for community activities, story gathering, workshops and creative events, acknowledging the historical, mythological and living presence of the winds and their importance in Mediterranean culture. Il-Warda Tar-Riħ (The Windrose Project) instigated an exchange of cultural and artistic ideas, knowledge and skills in Għarb, Marsaxlokk, Mġarr (Malta) and Sliema.
