The Gozo Centre for Art & Crafts has recently embarked on a project of direct video conferencing. The initiative was achieved following bilateral meetings between officials from the American Embassy and the Head of School. The American Embassy offered all the technical support, together with the speakers who will be delivering the talks. Currently in the pipeline are two conferences; the first on Thursday, the 26th of January, 2012 featuring American Vintage Adverts and to follow, famous American artist Edward Hopper and his works, on Friday, the 17th of February, 2012. The event is the first of its kind, where a DVC is being transmitted with a foreign country.
The Centre is giving the conference maximum prominence and aim to further mark this event by means of an exhibition featuring American symbols (the flag, the eagle etc.).
The exhibition if being officially inaugurated by the Minister for Gozo, Giovanna Debono, who will also be present for the kick-off of the DVC. Other features which that the centre wishes to include in the exhibition are posters of American films which were aired before 1975 and vintage American advertising material. The highest authorities on the island and from the American Embassy are also being invited to be present for the DVC and the official inauguration of the exhibition.
