Malta’s Science and Arts Festival is Back!

Malta’s science and arts festival, Science in the City is Taking Root once more, and proudly presents its 10th festival! Through engaging activities, music and performances as well as chats with researchers, Science in the City wants to show the fascinating side of science and the opportunities that STEM careers offer.

The festival will kick off with a bang on the 30 September at 6pm, where you can experience a variety of talks, hands-on experiments and performances within the historic walls of Fort St. Elmo (main event), as well as St. Dominic’s Hall (main performances location), Spazju Kreattiv, and the fortified City of Senglea.

The 1st of October will bring with it a full day of fun and educational events, from 10am to 11pm, which will take place in St. Dominic’s Hall, Merchants Street, Valletta in collaboration with Notte Bianca.

The goal for this year’s festival is to push forward the concept of Taking Root; that citizens can use research-based knowledge to help identify the political, social, environmental and technical challenges and opportunities, in order to influence policies and decisions which
impact them. 

Science in the City is part of the EU-wide celebration, European Researchers’ Night. It is co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme, under grant agreement No 101061120, the Arts Council Malta (ACM), Esplora STEM Engagement fund, Trust Stamp, Ministry for Education, Sport, Youth, Research and Innovation , and a number of corporate sponsors. It is recognised by Europe for Festivals and Festivals for Europe (EFFE).
