The third edition of Science in the Citadel is a one-day Science extravaganza, taking place within the historic walls of the atmospheric Cittadella in Victoria. We are aiming to provide a fun and stimulating experience for visitors of all ages in order to get people talking about science, engaging with its many strands and appreciating the breadth of research, creativity and innovation taking place on the Maltese islands.

Although it is modelled on the annual Science in the City, held in Valletta every September, this day will be firmly Gozitan in flavour, with displays relevant to our lives here, including items on the island’s biodiversity, geology, agriculture, seas and skies as well as items highlighting the science and engineering inherent in the Citadel itself and its museums. Our interactive Science Trail will take you around most of the features and spectacular vistas of the fortress effortlessly blending the past with the leading edge science and technology of the future, demonstrating how Science is, and always has been, relevant to our daily lives.

The Gozo Half Marathon Organising Committee is proud to announce that registrations for participation in the 44th edition of the Teamsport Gozo Half Marathon are now open. The event is by far the largest and longest-standing athletic event in Gozo attracting hundreds of local and foreign athletes.

The 2019 edition marks a very special edition for one of Malta’s most anticipated racing events with several changes to the event format which will make it a truly unique running experience. In fact, the event will be spread over two days – 27 & 28 April – making it a perfect opportunity for friends and families alike to spend a weekend in Gozo, enjoying the untouched beauty of Malta’s sister island and experiencing this revolutionary format of the event, which is the first of its kind in the Maltese Islands.

For the first time ever, competitive races for children (Kids 2km and Kids 4km) will take place on Saturday 27th April 2019 making it possible for athletic parents/relatives to watch their little ones run. On Sunday 28th April 2019, apart from the half marathon, the organisers are proud to debut a new 10km route which will replace the previous 8-mile race. The Sunday event will also feature a number of non-competitive runs/walks, namely 10km walk, 5km walk, family 5km run, and family 2km run.

“We aim to improve the quality of the event year in year out” noted Mark Bonnici, President of the organising committee. The Gozo Tourism Association has recognized the efforts of the Gozo Half Marathon organisers, who were awarded with the ‘Gozo Cultural/Social Tourism Achievement Award 2018’.

Our perception is often based on what we hear, see or are told.We are not always interested in finding out the truth before we decide.

In this exhibition, I have explored general perceptions to show that what we think of people, characters or other worldly beings, can be very different from the true person or their purpose.

The subjects I have chosen can be seen by some as Saintly, while others see them as quite the opposite. They have been, or are being judged by their appearance, their actions, by stories told or for
their vocations.

The exhibition seeks to ask the question of the viewers perception of the subject, whilst giving an impression of them to reflect, or in some cases, deflect, from the truth of their true story.

Scalpel Art Explained

Taking an image, be it a photograph the artist has taken or one he found, the artist draws the image, choosing what he wants to cut out, and more importantly what he wants to leave behind. Then, reversing the image, the paper is cut. Each piece therefore is hand cut and totally unique.

The feature filmmaking debut from writer-director Lukas Dhont, GIRL is an extraordinarily moving coming-of-age tale about identity and the journey to becoming who you’re meant to be.

Determined 15-year-old Lara (an astonishing performance from newcomer Victor Polster) is a young woman who is fiercely committed to becoming a professional ballerina. She throws herself into this quest at a new school, but finds the usual frustrations and challenges of adolescence are heightened as her body does not bend to easily to the strict ballet discipline because she was born a boy.

Though supported by her family, Lara’s adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she prepares for gender reassignment surgery, pushing her body to its limits. Based on empowering real-life experiences, the award-winning GIRL is a powerful and sensitively told story about the nuances of growing up transgender and the struggle that can motivate or define that process.
