Stories at the Museum

Heritage Malta is inviting senior citizens, who obtained the Heritage Malta Senior Passport, to participate in an intriguing event which involves the sharing of narratives. Sessions will be held between Tuesday 26th & Friday 29th November at the national-community art museum MUŻA.

Gone are the days when visitors were expected to stand in awe and in silence at museums. Today, visitors are invited to engage with museums in order to understand better the collective cultural heritage. Events are organised to foster dialogue, curiosity and self-reflection, while museum spaces are utilised to exchange stories of past and present.

The event ‘Stories at the Museum’ intends to inspire the participants through two specific artworks that can ignite conversation. Initially examining and sharing the stories which these paintings can tell, participants will then be encouraged to dwell on particular episodes which they have lived throughout their lives and to share them with others. In this way, the museum will serve to give voice to its audience.

The workshop will be followed by a coffee break and a museum tour which will focus on the stories discussed.

Price: €3 per person (Heritage Malta Members join for free)

Time: 9.30am to noon.

Booking for these events can be done at Heritage Malta’s museums and sites or ONLINE.
