Directed by Professor Raphael Vella and organised by Valletta 2018, the Curatorial School hosts international guest speakers from various institutions; it offers a programme of lectures and workshops designed to bring new curatorial practices and philosophies to the local scene, while also opening the door to discussions on all areas of contemporary curatorial practice.

The Curatorial School is designed to act as a capacity-building and training opportunity for practitioners and students in a variety of related areas such as fine arts, art education, arts administration, curation and history of art. Participants will also be able to present their curatorial ideas and receive feedback from invited speakers.
