Mawra sal-Mithna

Back in 1724, Il-Mitħna tal-Maħlut was founded – the flour it ground feeding Malta’s growing population. It served as a home and space of shelter; a historic landmark, anchored, surrounded by seas of change. 300 years on, now known as The Mill – Art, Culture and Crafts Centre, it is still feeding the imagination, hope and creativity pulsating beyond the busy Birkirkara streets where it is found. Home of the Gabriel Caruana Foundation, countless characters have passed through its doors; many leaving their mark in one way or another. Mawra sal-Mitħna is a celebration of legacy, imagination and collective action. The coming together of people, ideas and an enthusiasm for positive change. You are all welcome to come along and leave your mark! Join us in celebrating The Mill and be part of our caringly curated activities on the 21 and 22 June. Let’s connect and nurture through art!
