In an ongoing storytelling project by Valletta 2018, Darba Waħda, children and elderly people bring together the wealth of information and experience of the elderly with the simplicity, youthfulness and creativity of children. Until 6th July, participants will creatively share stories using of puppets, shadow puppets and other artistic creations

The intergenerational project gives elderly and young the opportunity to meet and connect through storytelling over a creative platform which includes drama, games, arts and crafts. Through these activities, the two generations have the opportunity to create, relate, exchange and learn, as they share stories and experiences while having fun together.
