Stunning! Ta' Qali National Park gets new space dedicated to art and theatre exhibitions
A new area for art at Ta' Qali National Park whereby cultural productions will be held, including exhibitions and theatrical performances, has just been opened to the public.
This new area will be complementing the already existing Greek Amphitheatre, which has also undergone a renovation process. It now has new and accessible facilities for artistic needs such as rehearsal rooms, changing rooms and showers among others.
Underneath the same theatre, that accommodates around 850 people, a hall that can be used for various functions has also been completed.
Such an area will also serve as a platform for local and international artists to exhibit their talents.
Perit Nadia Curmi, the architect in charge of the project, explained how the design of this area was also done in such a way that the space was left as neutral as possible, in order for the exhibited installations to stand out.

Currently, in this new area, the Department of Public Works in collaboration with the Aviation Museum, is organising an exhibition of historical plans and photos that show the history of the development of the area of Ta' Qali throughout the years.
Additionally, the public can also view an exhibition of original graphic illustrations from the books of Trevor Zahra, the renowned author whose name is synonymous with children's books.
