I am pleased to inform you that we have ended the PingFin 8 workshop at Malta with great success. It has been a formidable 4-day experience and a real pleasure to share with a lot of talented people. I believe that all participants have learnt a lot and enjoyed themselves, we have also managed to complete design and implementation of 2 clearing house and 2 bank teams, had we had some more time, the other teams would have also finished.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank a number of persons who were an integral part of this workshop, starting with Odisee University for having us as their partner and for coordinating this event at an international level. Thank you, Yvan Rooseleer and Stefaan Debrabandere for your invaluable time and support. This year, we have had a number of guests to deliver the professional side of SEPA, namely Mr Joseph Mallia and Mr Emerson Amaira from Central Bank of Malta, Mr David Grech and Mr Aaran Calafato from MITA.

This year, MITA has increased its support at different levels, thanks to: Mr Carm Cachia and Ms Bernardette Zerafa from eSkills Malta Foundation for their financial support; thanks to Mr Alexander Borg, Ms Deborah Maria Schiavone and Ms Tea Vrcic from MITA Innovation Hub for the venue, refreshments, laptops, service and support.

This is a testament that MCAST puts the student experience at the forefront and I would like to thank: the Principal & CEO, Mr Stephen Cachia, IICT Director Mr Conrad Vassallo and IICT Deputies Mr Mark Anthony Farrugia and Mr Jean Paul Tabone; IICT admin team Ms Stefania Aquilina, Ms Cher Tonna, Ms Nadia Schembri and Ms Sephora Said. I would like to thank my colleagues from my heart for their invaluable support, I would not have been able to do this without their help: Mr Alan Gatt, Mr Luke Vella Critien and Mr Robert Abela.

It has been a real pleasure having you: Alpay Topalka, Ayoub Houari, Azeddine El Hammouchi, Berton Lutina Mulamba, Mohamed Lammou, Redouan Belguenani, Said Hadj, Walid Haouriqui and Yassine Azouagh.

Taħdita Teatru – Bookings are open

Arts Council Malta together with Teatru Malta are organising Taħdita Teatru, a two-day informal forum from 25th to 26th March 2017, on current issues in Maltese theatre, which activity is part of Viva t- Teatru – A celebration of World Theatre Day.

This forum will take the form of informal discussions, held in various theatre spaces in Malta and Gozo as part of a bus trip, with these discussions actually continuing on the bus ride between the various venues, and the ferry ride when travelling to Gozo! During lunches, an idea generating exercise will be organised.

Taħdita Teatru will begin on Saturday 25 March at 10.00am at the Valletta Campus Theatre (formerly known as MITP) with a discussion on whether theatre can be both experimental and popular. The final session will be held on the way back from Gozo on Sunday 26 March.

The discussions will be moderated by various theatre practitioners coming from different schools of theatre, such as Dr Nicole Bugeja, Chris Dingli, Joseph Zammit, Philip Leone Ganado and others. Various spaces will be used in each of the five regions of Malta and Gozo, such as the Domus in Żejtun, Mount Carmel Community Theatre, Sala Dun Karm Lia in Rabat and others.

Full time theatre professionals based abroad will be given a grant of up to €200 upon presentation of the flight receipt to attend this event.

The full programme and more info on each session are available on http://artscouncilmalta.org/news/viva-t-teatru-world-theatre-day-2017
