Ten projects award President’s Prize for Creativity
‘Tfal tal-Port’ (Children of the Harbour) is the name of a project proposed by the Film Grain Foundation which is expected to draw children who live in the Grand Harbour area to the world of cinema.
This is just one of the ten projects which were awarded the President’s Prize for Creativity. This prize has the aim of recognizing and helping organizations, especially those which work with vulnerable people so that, at the same time, they can encourage the use of creativity and art through their projects. These projects also lead to more integration and involvement in society.
For this prize, which is given in collaboration between the Arts Council and the Office of the President, €60,000 were allocated and 17 nominations were submitted.
Among the projects which were given funds were those related to photography and music.
During her speech, President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca described the projects which were carried out over the last few years thanks to this prize as miraculous, and said that people are realising that through the power of art, man can find himself and form new relationships. She added that reform was needed so that this prize can continue to grow and more spaces where people can express themselves can be created.
