Għarb artistic programme on cultural diversity

Between 2016 and 2018, Fondazzjoni Kreattività and the Valletta 2018 Foundation collaborated on an international programme of artists’ residencies based in Għarb.

This aimed to enrich cultural diversity within the national creative scene, particularly that of Malta’s sister island, while encouraging productive interactions between international and local creatives, international creatives and local communities, as well as physical and virtual environments.

Twenty-seven projects by 38 artists from Germany, the US, Egypt, France, Canada, Israel, Pakistan, Switzerland, Greece, Australia and Jordan, among others, were produced in the remote and relatively laid-back environment of Għarb.

Not Just The City, an ongoing exhibition being held at St James Cavalier, demonstrates a sample of the work produced away from ‘The City’ exactly at the farthest northwestern tip of the Maltese Islands.

This exhibition comes at a time of flux, when the artists’ residency programme for Fondazzjoni Kreattività will, this year, develop into a collaboration with the Valletta Design Cluster, along with other collaborative partners.

Not Just The City runs at Space B, Spazju Kreattiv, St James Cavalier, Valletta until February 10. Entrance is free. Opening hours: Monday from 9am to 5pm; Tuesday to Friday from 9am to 9pm; Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 9pm.
