Last month, LuginsLand of Art launched its Educational Programme encompassing discussion panels and workshops, each delving into various facets of art and its relationships, including architecture, archaeology, community and artistic legacy. The programme aims to foster a space for discussion and offers a unique opportunity to explore the villa’s ongoing construction and preservation effort.

LuginsLand of Art is a project that aims to breathe new life into one of the most significant architectural gems in Malta, Villa LuginsLand in Rabat. The project is being operated and managed by the OmenaArt Foundation, of which Omenaa Mensah is the CEO. A Polish philanthropist, businesswoman and art collector, she is also the foundation’s founder and leads worldwide projects and initiatives in the realms of design, architecture and art.

As to LuginsLand of Art’s educational programme, a series of sessions are being planned that include a guided tour around the villa, the possibility of viewing the collective exhibition ‘Space & Time’ curated by a renowned Slovakian set designer and architect – Boris Kudlička, and a talk with invited local and international artists, art historians, architects, and art professionals. The attendees get a chance to also experience a live metal and stone demonstration by AX Group.

During the first panel ‘Art & Architecture’, participants were invited to delve into the intrinsic relationship between art and architecture. The talk of esteemed guests Professor Alex Torpiano and Art Historian Dominika Rostocka shed light on the artistics sensibilities that inform architectural aesthetics.

The second session ‘Art & Archaeology’ engaged the attendees in a discussion on the shaping of spaces and their character influenced by archaeological findings.
