The Valletta 2018 Foundation has launched an Open Call for musicians, event organisers and creatives of all disciplines to submit proposals to form part of European Capital of Culture’s Music Programme during 2018. Proposals of musical and music-related projects and events are being considered.

Successful proposals will be awarded a grant of up to €6,000 and will feature in Valletta 2018’s calendar of events. Proposals will be assessed on a number of criteria such as their experimental and participatory nature as well as their spirit of fostering collaboration between different musicians, genres and different types of music.

Preference will be given to proposals created by young people, and that and that foster collaboration between local musicians and those from the Mediterranean region.

Proposals may be newly developed or may form part of an already existing event or festival.

More information on how to submit can be found on:

Deadline for proposals should reach the Valletta 2018 Foundation by Monday 22nd May at noon.
