Spazju Kreattiv

Valletta, Malta

The Spazju Kreattiv season, produced by Fondazzjoni Ċentru għall-Kreattività, is based on the three strategic pillars of artistic excellence, community outreach and internationalisation. In this framework, the programme of events comprises a series of creative and cultural events that take place primarily at St James Cavalier, as well as other locations in Malta and Gozo. Part of the core initiatives, the season includes a visual and performing arts programme, artist-in-residence programme, the only arthouse cinema programme in Malta, and a ŻiguŻajg series especially catered for children and families. Other ventures by Fondazzjoni Kreattività, include the national festivals ŻiguŻajg and VIVA - the Valletta International Visual Arts Festival. Both these, as well as the Spazju Kreattiv season, are formulated in the context of a growing cultural creative scene in Malta, and in line with Fondazzjoni Kreattività’s remit of being a catalyst for contemporary expression, a key stakeholder in the continued legacy of the Valletta 2018 European Capital of Culture, and as facilitator in the implementation of the Arts Council Malta’s Strategy 2025.
