10305037_513236228782370_746864711919199402_nCan you learn about a culture through love and flowers? The love for flowers? The flowers as an expression of love? What flower comes to your mind when you feel love? Do you use flowers for ceremonies and rituals? How do they convey love? Do you have a story to narrate how you used flowers to express your love to someone? Do you use herbs to put you in the mood to open your heart for love? What herbs do you use as aphrodisiacs and in love potions? In ceremonies and rituals to convey love? Come and share your story or the story of your family and culture as related to flowers, herbs and love.

What if we met to exchange our stories be they personal, ethnic, cultural, spiritual or traditional, on the use of herbs and flowers?

We, at the Proġett Ħwawar u Fjuri, want to invite you just for that! Join us at our third workshop, Namur, where we will meet together to exchange our stories on Saturday 10th of May between 9:00a.m. and 12:00a.m., at the Carmelite’s Priory in Mdina.  The workshop will be facilitated by Censu Caruana

Workshop Information

The workshops, each of which is restricted to around 8 participants, will be each facilitated by a different facilitator who will invite participants to share their stories of flowers and the use of herbs on the theme of the workshop. These stories will be used by the facilitator to compile a general narrative. The narratives and photography of the workshops will be reproduced at the Carmelite Priory in Mdina during the closing photographic exhibition of the project.

The workshops will be attended by a professional photographer, who will take pictures of the workshop, unless advised otherwise by the participants. In the compilation of narratives, the anonymity of each participant will be ensured.
