Jointly developed by the Valletta 2018 Foundation and Heritage Malta, Naqsam il-MUŻA is an exercise in community curation whereby members of the Kalkara community choose and present artworks from the art collection soon to be on display at MUŻA.

The National Museum of Fine Arts is currently transitioning to MUŻA, Malta’s new national-community art museum to open its doors as a flagship project during 2018, when Valletta is named European Capital of Culture.Naqsam il-MUŻA is an exercise in citizen participation.  The project was launched in Valletta with 10 members of the Valletta community visiting the National Museum of Fine Arts. Participants present their choice of artefact to friends and family members, and propose the community space in Kalkara where the artwork will be displayed for all to see.
