These residencies are based in the context of a growing cultural scene in Malta in the run-up to Valletta’s European Capital of Culture title. The residency itself is based in the rural island of Gozo, sister island of Malta, surrounded by a close community. The residencies are based on the concept of cultural immersion within the island; with its landscapes, seascapes and soundscapes, and the contemporary exploration of cultural diversity that exists there. Links with Malta and Valletta are possible, however the artist-in-resident should seek to collaborate as much as possible with local communities.
A call is currently open for residencies and projects, of two to three weeks in length,taking place between August 2017 and December 2018. Find out more here.
