The Victoria International Arts Festival is hosting its first-ever mini-festival dedicated to children in the coming days.

The innovative project, designed for kids aged five to 12, aims to engage their young minds through four disciplines: music, art, storytelling and science.

Each session will be led by experts in their respective fields and offer hands-on, practical experiences.

The festival will take place on various dates, with limited spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. Here is a schedule of activities:

Dr Joanne Camilleri will lead two music sessions and a piano masterclass at the Gozo School of Performing Arts in Xewkija, today, August 2.

Dr Giuliana Fenech and Jacob Piccinino will deliver three storytelling sessions at the Oratory Don Bosco in Victoria on August 8.

Il-Ħaġar Museum in St George’s Square, Victoria, will host two art sessions for children aged 10 to 12, led by Victor Agius, on August 23 and another two sessions for children aged 6 to 9 by Rachel Galea on September 1.

And Prof. Joseph Caruana will lead two science sessions on August 12 and September 7 at Dwejra beach.

Full details on all sessions are available on viaf.org.mt/viaf-mini-festival-for-children/.

Since the number of participants is limited, booking is necessary on info@viaf.org.mt, specifying the discipline and preferred time slot.

As with all other events of the Victoria International Arts Festival, registration is free.
