‘[The shores of the Mediterranean] differ in terms of people and population, ethnicities, history, specific features of the economy, in culture and in religion. […] With regard to Mediterranean ports, they are marked by commercial relations that were the beginning of Greek civilisation […] power and political authorities that sought to dominate the town through the domination of space, were constituted very early. These powers drew and continue to draw on space as a means of control, as a political instrument.’

Rhythms of the City: a public debate, draws from Lefebvre’s provocations in ‘Attempts at the Rhythmanalysis of Mediterranean Cities’. The debate will bring together a number of professionals/experts in the fields of interculturalism, multilingualism, cultural festivals and cities – all within the context of this year’s The Mediterranean Dimension project.

The debate will start with three main provocations and proceed with reactions from a number of professionals/experts, leading to a public debate.

The Mediterranean Dimension is an ARC Research & Consultancy project supported by Arts Council Malta and the Valletta 2018 – European Capital of Culture Multi‐Annual Support Grant (Malta Arts Fund), in collaboration with Medinea, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Spazju Kreattiv, Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, A Soul for Europe, Centre for Research in Culture and Performance at the School of Performing Arts – University of Malta and Malta Society of Arts.
