We are delighted to share Hitomi Matsumoto's thoughts on Atelier Valletta 2019

4 February 2020

One of the main aims of The Festival Academy is to create spaces of exchange and reflection and this is why we are delighted to share Hitomi Matsumoto's reflections on the Atelier Valletta, which took place in March 2019.

The 7-day program was so substantial. There were presentations of festivals by all participants, discussions on various topics to be considered in carrying out festivals, presentations by working groups, and cultural visits to several spots in Malta. What was impressive for me was that there was rarely one-way lecture format, and most of the time was spent on discussions and communications between the participants.
