National theatre company Teatru Malta has welcomed Giuliana Barbaro-Sant as its new Head of Production.
Founded in 2016 and led by Artistic Director Sean Buhagiar, Teatru Malta has produced dozens of theatrical productions, workshops, and projects aimed at nurturing artistic development. One of the company’s most recent accomplishments is its collaboration with the European Theatre Convention.
Ms Barbaro-Sant took to social media to celebrate her appointment.
“After seven years managing cultural projects with terrific people at the Valletta Cultural Agency and the Valletta 2018 Foundation, I’m very grateful to now be leading theatre projects as Head of Productions at Teatru Malta,” she wrote.
The Head of Production’s involvement in the local arts scene dates back to 2011, when she served as a Festival Assistant at Spazju Kreattiv, formerly known as St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity.
Since then, Ms Barbaro-Sant has occupied a variety of roles appertaining to different industries. These include a three-and-a-half-year stint as an EFL Teacher at the Skylark School of English, a year-long tenure as a Social Media Journalist at BRND WGN, and a brief stint as Crowdfunding Campaign Coordinator at Opening Doors Malta.
Prior to joining Teatru Malta, Ms Barbaro-Sant served as a Programming and Production Executive at the Valletta Cultural Agency (VCA) for just over three years.
He takes over from Alejandro Gosttuski, who will now take on the role of an Advisor.
The company, set to launch soon, will seek to provide clients with ‘customer-centric and innovative’ financial services.
The Malta Stock Exchange recently joined other exchanges for the inaugural Ring the Bell for Climate initiative.
Family businesses account for more than 70% of Malta’s SMEs, and are hence vital components of the local economy.
