Latitude 36 is a socially engaged audio-visual arts project from artist Charlie Cauchi, focusing on the Maltese diasporic community. It engages Maltese individuals and community groups located around the world, collecting stories and unearthing both personal and collective narratives. With the help of the Maltese diaspora, the migratory experience is placed at the core, mapping and examining migratory patterns and narratives through the visual arts.
From a post-war, post-colonial perspective through to EU membership, it explores Maltese migration and captures the immigration experience of this minority group. This project has been travelling around the world since 2016, including various 2nd and 3rd generation Maltese communities in the UK and USA, and will continue gathering material through its various contacts with Embassies and High Commissions.
