The project is developed in collaboration with Medinea, Festival d’Aix-en- Provence, Egyptian Center for Culture and Arts – “Makan”, Spazju Kreattiv, the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, Centre for Research in Culture and Performance at the University of Malta and A Soul for Europe. The project is part of a multi-layered collaboration between ARC and the EuroMed network Medinea Project created in 2011 and coordinated by the Festival d’Aix en Provence. The Medinea Project consists of more than twenty cultural organisations operating in the music and performing arts sectors engaged in dynamics of exchange and collaboration at an international level. ARC represents Malta in the Medinea Project and has been part of the network since 2014. The Festival d’Aix-en- Provence – known for its focus on opera and its commitment to commission new works – is one of the most prestigious European festival.

The Mediterranean Dimension Project consists of different events that will be held between 2017 and 2019 in Malta. These include intercultural residencies and workshops, performances, auditions for various activities in the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, and research encounters related to the events.
