The Library of Congress and The Kennedy Centre, Washington DC for Eurokids 2014

In November 2014, the Embassy of the Republic of Malta participated in the Kids Euro Festival, which was organised by the EU Delegation to the United States with a show from More or Less Theatre.

The Executive Director of the European American Cultural Foundation Kimberley Heatherington thanked Ambassador Marisa Micallef and said that this”enthusiasm for Kids Euro Festival and the spirit it represents means a great deal to the American European Cultural Foundation...and that it is only through this kind of collaboration that the Kids Euro Festival is at all possible.”

Malcolm Galea and Joseph Zammit performed in four shows while in Washington, performing The Complete History of Malta (More or Less) at two significant venues, the Kennedy Centre Millennium Stage and a first for Malta… at the Library of Congress…as well as in two schools Sheridan School and the Mansion at Strathmore where these two talented performers brought the house down.

This two-week long festival is a joint cultural diplomacy initiative of the EU Embassies in Washington and is a wonderful showcase of European arts and culture that presents many free activities to families and, particularly, to children. This year’s more than 200 events included performances, concerts, workshops, movies, storytelling, puppetry, dance, magic, cinema and more.

The Embassy of Malta in Washington DC would like to thank the Ministry for Foreign Affairs’ Cultural Diplomacy Fund and the generosity of the benefactors of the European-American Cultural Foundation, for having made the whole event possible.
