The Bieganski Art Festival: Valletta's Month-Long WW1 Commemoration in the Heart of Malta

Berkshire, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 11, 2014 -- 28th July 1914 marks the day when armed troops from around the globe locked horns and commenced in WWI. 100 years on and both local and foreign artists have joined forces in Valletta, replacing the Brownings of then with the brushes of now. Boldly acknowledging the historical significance of the war in a delightfully creative initiative, this Malta event makes holidays to Malta an attractive prospect.

The Bieganski Foundation isresponsible for organising thisfirst ever Malta event of its kind (1st - 31st August 2014) and reveals that Malta holidays are brimming with cultural gems. The foundationlikely chose the Mediterranean Conference Centre (MCC) as the grand venue due to its charming historic furnishings and elaborate, spacious layout. The building dates back to 1574, and coats of arms line the stone hallways, nodding to a time of the Cretan and French Revolutionary wars.

Today, preserved in artefacts, the MCC evokes thoughts as to our place in the tapestry of time, thus rendering the venue ideal for the Malta event. Expect visitors on their holidays to Malta to have a strong presence.

This Malta event brings together more than 100 creatives to exhibit WW1-related artwork, educating the monumental battle to inquisitive visitors on their Malta holidays. At theBieganski Arts Festival, the lines between strokes and staves blur together, so expect musicians, guest speaking professors and, of course, the artists themselves - all unified by one common factor: the disparity between art and war.

This relationship is an interesting connection considering the definitive military tactic book The Art of War, and how Sun Tzu talks about the title subject with such precision. The difference in this context being: Tzu refers to the delicate planning process of waging war as an art form itself, where as this Malta event celebrates artistic expression as a means of exciting reflective discourse.

This dialogue is sure to reach the ever-stretching 'Great Ward', flood the lecture theatres and create the loudest buzz of the Malta events. Daily exhibitions fill the month's calendar with a broad range of events and activities; the first night welcomes the Archbishop of Malta, Mgr. Paul Cremona who will be present at the opening proceedings and, alongside regular exhibitions, visitors are invited to indulge in nights of literature & poetry, journeys into the art of wine tasting and treated to see the festival's end ceremony with an explosive grand finale of fireworks.
