Here is a sample of the many cultural and artistic events taking place on the Maltese Islands during August 2019.

A curated exhibition, marking the 40th anniversary since the departure of foreign military forces from Malta on 31 March 1979. This exhibition portrays life in Fort St Angelo in Vittoriosa, as well as the different roles of the Fort and the services it offered to the Royal Navy and its staff.

2. ART: Inspired by China

The China Cultural Centre in Malta (CCC), annually sends a group of Maltese artists to China, to get a first-hand experience of the cultural, artistic and social milieu and transform this experience of feeling, sentiment and emotion into a tangible creative expression through painting, sculpture and photography, for their orientation and education and to share it with the Maltese and foreign visitors to the exhibition. Debbie Bonello, Andrew Borg, Damian Ebejer and Lucienne Spiteri are the participants in the 2018/19 project, the sixth in the series. Until 28 August at Skyparks Business Centre.
