Miriam Vella, Malta’s First Lady, thanked all the teachers as well as the parents who in these months did their utmost to ensure their children’s education remains undisrupted. She attended an event that welcomed the winners of Heritage Malta’s ‘Be the Artist’ initiative held at MUZA, the National Community Art Musuem.

The selection of works from children aged 16 and under currently displayed at MUZA focus on the themes of prehistoric temples, traditional confections, and pose for art. The themes formed part of the online competition, which was aimed at keeping children inspired during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Heritage Malta seeks to reach out to all generations,” stated Mario Cutajar, Heritage Malta’s Executive Director. “The ‘Be the Artist’ initiative gathered a successful response from very talented children and teenagers.” Over 260 artistic pieces were gathered through this competition.
