Niltaqgħu mal-Artist is a series of illustrated artist talks co-produced by the MCAST Art & Design Institute and the M3P Foundation.
The series features students from MCAST meeting with a Maltese artist for a talk in the MCAST video studio at Tarġa Gap. Further interaction with the artists takes place through filming at their personal studios or other relevant venues. Aside from the illustrated talk, the series also gives access to the artist through materials gathered in the M3P multimedia database.
A pilot run for the series was produced early in 2012, featuring three artists, without any M3P input. The artists in this part of the series are:
In the summer of 2012, the collaboration between the two entities was established when it became clear that the oral history series that the M3P had planned in 2011, starting with the Galea family at the National Archives as part of the M3P:Inaugural Conference, ran parallel in scope with the work being conducted by MCAST. The M3P Oral History Series is produced with support, in part, from the Malta Arts Fund.
For the next production round, the following three artists have been identified:
Pre-production started in September 2012, with in studio production slated for November 2012. The M3P segment producers are Noel D'Anastas (Paul Asciak), Michael Bugeja (Erich Azzopardi), and Toni Sant with Charles City Gatt (Freddie Mizzi). It is expected that post-production will be completed by February 2013. Ian Attard and David Tanti are the production tutors responsible for this series at MCAST.
