Watch: Valletta Green Festival to be streamed live online


As Malta continues to battle the Covid-19 pandemic, the Valletta Cultural Agency (VCA) will be live-streaming its popular Valletta Green Festival online for free between the 7th and the 10th May, giving the public the opportunity to enjoy the annual spring-time event safely from the comfort of their own homes.

Newsbook.com.mt spoke to Lisa Marie Kaehler, the designer of this year’s infiorata (large-scale flower decorations) playfully titled Beeodiversity. Inspired by art nouveau floral patterns and frame layouts, Beeodiversity will shed light upon biodiversity, the theme for this year’s Valletta Green Festival.

This year’s installation includes a variety of elements which represent our environment, including local flora and fauna with the main focal point of the design being a large bee. This design aspires to encourage people to become aware of issues which threaten biodiversity, and to act to maintain a healthy ecosystem that can survive generations.

The VCA will be teaming up with Skyline Webcams to live-stream thanks to a webcam placed on top of the Grandmaster’s Palace providing a bird’s eye view of the square. The public may tune in online at any time throughout the duration of the festival to experience it.

You may follow the Valletta Cultural Agency’s Facebook page for more information, and also tune in to the live-stream there between the 7th and 10th of May.
