Shifting Contexts will encourage young artists to appropriate the given theme of shifting contexts within all varied layers of life and literally run away with it, taking it elsewhere into new and unexpected territories.
Creativity entails looking at familiar things from a completely novel perspective and Shifting Contexts will encourage and sustain this approach. Participating artists must show how they have responded to the theme by shifting and moving it into an original context to generate new meanings that allow for further interpretations to emerge.
Shifting Contexts promotes a shared vision for the future of young people in accordance with the National Youth Policy – towards 2020, contribute to driving cultural, social and economic regeneration as envisaged in the mission statement of Valletta 2018 and collectively lead to the building of vital and dynamic communities of the future.
The exhibition will be held from the 14th-31st December to 2018 at Spazju Kreattiv.
