FIRST LOOK: Fresh new platform aims to showcase local music in gorgeous Maltese locations

Despite its size, Malta is an island filled to the brim with local talent and The Unconventional Office (UCO) has set its sights on giving said talent the platform it oh so truly deserves.

Launching this August, UCO’s first season brings together a team of creative minds centred around a Volkswagen T25, releasing a total of 20 episodes composed of 10 local acts taking part in 10 bite-size performances and 10 interviews on YouTube.

UCO was first conceived around 4 years ago whilst its Director and Creator Neo Borg Bonaci would have conversations with friends. A search on MaltaPark and a few years of restoration later, The Unconventional Office was born, ready in its teal and off-white glory to host a new concept roving from location to location around the Maltese Islands and, eventually, beyond.

The gorgeous episodic series will welcome a roster of local talent for a number of mini-concerts and interviews which bring together the process and artistic output together in a relaxed setting, complemented by an immersive visual narrative which highlights the sounds of Malta’s finest alternative artists.

Through The Unconventional Office, the team also aims to promote the natural and historic landmarks of the Maltese Islands through stunning videography. In line with this appreciation for our natural heritage, UCO has also teamed up with a local NGO to aid them in promoting the incredible work they do to promote sustainability throughout the Maltese Islands. 

This series will be launched on 9th August, 2022 at 4pm and will air on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The Unconventional Office is supported by Arts Council Malta and The Insynk Collective, and is in Media Partnership with MaltaDaily. This project is also sponsored by Urban Jungle.

Malta Police Union welcomes new policy where tattoos ‘are not considered a taboo any longer’

The Malta Police Union has welcomed the Malta Police Force’s newly-published policy regarding tattoos.

“The Union is pleased that finally, the policy has been published and Tattoos are being regulated and not considered a taboo any longer”, the union wrote.

The Police Force’s previous position on tattoos stirred quite a lot of controversy around the Maltese Islands, with many highlighting how tattoos do not change the nature of the person and considering them as ‘taboo’ is an incorrect mentality. Do you welcome the new changes?
