People and Dancefloors in Malta

Presentation (Circuits 2021) Festival Day 1

23/10/2021 18:00

Spazju Kreattiv, Public Talks and Presentations Area

During this presentation, Karen Mamo will talk about People and DanceFloors in Malta project.

Based on a participatory action research methodology, this project involves knowledge co-creation with project partners and participants. Led by a team of researchers, the project crosses the boundaries between research, film and activism.

Representing the voice of a small group of clubbers and people in the industry between the ages of 24 and 50, People and Dancefloors Malta provided a platform and a voice for the leading protagonists of the Maltese clubbing scene and dancefloors: the PEOPLE. Whilst recognising that the dancefloor is a great space for interaction, newfound connections, pleasure and enjoyment, participants brought to light several challenges that are unique to the Maltese context.

Here, we touch upon some salient issues highlighted by participants, including the somewhat tense relationship between the electronic music scene and law enforcement, along with the changes brought by the Covid pandemic.
