Rosa – Kwir

The Melita Foundation supported Rosa – Kwir in promoting creativity and inclusivity with flair.

Rosa – Kwir was an great project focusing on celebrating and enriching LGBTQI+ culture. The project’s aim was to build an arts center and create a huge archive filled with photos, videos, and more. This archive will be an amazing resource for learning about the history of LGBTQI+ people in Malta and Europe, both online and in-person. Thanks to funding from The Melita Foundation, Rosa – Kwir has expanded our digital reach and made this archive accessible to everyone.

Rosa – Kwir also hosts fun exhibitions, workshops, and events, bringing together local artists, writers, and activists. They’re all about fostering a creative and inclusive community. By preserving our cultural heritage, we’re also fighting homophobia and educating the public about LGBTQI+ issues, while promoting mental health and well-being. With The Melita Foundation’s support, Rosa – Kwir is making a positive impact and ensuring this important work continues.
