An information session and special preview of ŻiguŻajg 2019’s Festival Programme is to be held on Wednesday, 2 October, at which educators will also be given early access to tickets for festival events
The ŻiguŻajg Festival will return for its 9th edition between 15 and 24 November 2019, catering once again for children aged 0 to 16 years. Heads of schools, teachers, and cultural mentors are being invited to attend a schools’ information meeting on Wednesday, 2 October. At this meeting, Festival Director Daniel Azzopardi will give an exclusive preview of the festival programme, while attendees will also benefit from priority booking.
The ŻiguŻajg Festival schools programme is free of charge and tickets will be out in October. Educators are being encouraged to introduce their students to the arts and ensure an unforgettable experience at one of the various performances and workshops on offer for schools. With 21 productions from 11 countries in the programme, students will witness a variety of performances in dance, theatre, music, film, puppetry, visual arts and so much more.
From opportunities to develop their talents to experiences that will stimulate creative skills and imagination, the 2019 ŻiguŻajg Festival programmes ensure a multitude of creative learning opportunities for all attendees.
All productions will be linked to specific learning outcomes to ensure that children and young people have access to creative arts and culture as part of their development. Certain projects are accompanied by a resource pack that can be used in class. Schools may wish to encourage students, parents and carers to participate in events taking place during the afternoons and at weekends.
Bookings for the individual productions will be processed through the Festival’s online portal, which will be open after the meeting. Attendees will need to sign a registration sheet on the day, and the Festival Programme, information on events, seating capacity and online booking links will be forwarded to them by email. Schools that are not present for the meeting will receive the information by email on Thursday 3 October.
The information meeting and ŻiguŻajg special preview will take place on October 2 at 10am in Studio B, Spazju Kreattiv, Valletta.
