Welcome to Charity!

Laura is an artist and former secondary school art teacher and head of department of fifteen years. Now an entrepreneur, she is currently developing new businesses in the Arts in Malta. These are Allura: Malta Open Art Studios, designated to be Malta’s pilot social enterprise, and the MACC: the Malta Arts and Culture Club, a creative hub for those who love all things cultural and Arts-related. Her background is in the visual arts, namely fine art, illustration, textiles, printmaking, digital art and graphic design. She is also working towards a Post-graduate Diploma in Interior Design. Her creative ventures draw upon her wide and varied artistic background and range of creative skills tin order to drive innovation and change in an industry she is passionate about. She has also previously worked in galleries and exhibitions, office management, publishing and retail, and has a background in events and project management. Her people-facing teaching career has given her a vast amount of presentation experience, upon which she now draws for the networking, public relations and marketing aspects of her new enterprises. These are driven by a passion for the Arts and for Malta itself, which she has come to love since relocating in April 2016. These projects are motivated by a desire to support, promote and celebrate the Arts and to drive constructive change in the creative sectors, so that the Maltese Arts and cultural sectors might evolve alongside social, economic and environmental change. Laura is also a French speaker. Her creative portfolio can be viewed at www.lauraswale.com
