The Valletta 2018 Foundation is endorsing the Art of Peace Exhibition that shall take at Spazju Kreattiv in March 2017. Organized by the Artraker Foundation, this exhibition will showcase the works of the Artraker Awards runners up and winners, Maltese artists, and art generated through its One in a Million project on diversity in schools.
The Artraker Foundation’s mission is to shape how people and organisations understand and respond to violent conflict and its effects. Over three weeks, the event will include an award ceremony, panel debates, receptions, school workshops and a cinema evening. This collaborative venture shall bring international and Maltese art together to explore the importance of art in contexts of social upheaval, thus bringing added value to Malta and the Maltese art scene.
As partnership between the Artraker Foundation and British Council (Malta), the event also benefits from the multilevel support of Spazju Kreattiv, the Malta Arts Council and the Ministry of Education.
