ReCreate: Nature-based Co-Creation in Senglea - Beauty in Diversity
To ReCreate is by definition a creative process of achieving relevance in a changing context.
The ReCreate project aims to build upon the vision of a group of residents from the locality of Senglea, who are actively reimagining their hometown as a greener, more livable space, using arts and gardening as their inspiration. Ultimately, ReCreate will contribute to a more sustainable, beautiful and inclusive space in line with the principles of the New European Bauhaus. The project shall feature as one of a series of placemaking initiatives in Malta, at a time when such efforts are crucial to post-pandemic efforts of community building through socio-spatial interventions.
ReCreate is coordinated by Ecostack Innovations in collaboration with Senglea Local Council, Dawra Madwarna and the University of Malta
