‘This it’s been an amazing experience and opportunity for me as an artist to meet and listen lots of experiences and witnesses from migrants residing in Malta, and the stigma they have to carry as refugees living in the island.’

‘With these kind of projects, we aim to reach a new point of view on these communities we share our country with, while we create opportunities for inclusion and common understanding.’

With the support of Dance Beyond Borders and Malta International Arts Festival, the mural has been created for all to visit and reflect over the challenges faced by refugees seeking safe harbour around the Mediterranean and Malta.
