On the 8 March, APS Bank has launched an art exhibition stemming from art therapy sessions by survivors of domestic violence and it was inaugurated by H. E. the President of Malta Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca.

The initiative was the fruition of a partnership with St Jeanne Antide Foundation that through the APS Sustainability Programme could raise more awareness about the topic. The art exhibition themed UMAMA (meaning ‘mother’ in Zulu), was also supported by Arts Council Malta and the President’s Award for Creativity. To further drive the meaning behind the initiative, the exhibition was launched on Women’s Day.

During the opening ceremony, Frederick Mifsud Bonnici, APS Bank’s chairman stated, “It is clear that the art therapy sessions were successful in displaying the deep-rooted emotions. We are proud to be hosting this exhibition at our premises as this resonates well with the Bank’s values and social consciousness.”

The art exhibition will remain open until the 12th April and is held at the APS Centre in Birkirkara. Visiting hours are from Monday to Friday between 8:30 and 15:30 and on Saturdays from 8.30 to 12:00.
