The 9th edition of ŻiguŻajg Festival returns with an amazing line-up of Maltese and international projects, bringing joy to thousands of children and their families all around Malta and Gozo. This year’s ŻiguŻajg will have our children’s future at its core. We will be presenting work which does not shy away from topical subjects by asking of our audiences to think and discuss whilst being entertained. Among the main themes tackled are the environment, multiculturalism and integration, bullying, sexual identity and the role of youths in society.
The 2019 programme will comprise 21 projects and 9 creative forms. 11 of these are by some of the foremost international artists, and 10 have been created by Maltese artists. 5 projects have been commissioned especially for the Festival, and another 5 are co-productions with other public cultural entities – that means that this edition will have no less than 10 premieres and over 130 collaborating artists!
