Brief description of residency program

The Artist-in-Residence (AIR) programme by Fondazzjoni Kreattività was launched back in 2001, just a few months after the creation of the Foundation based at St James Cavalier. The AiR Programme aims to enrich cultural diversity within the national creative scene, and encourage productive interactions between international creatives and local creatives, between international creatives and communities as well as physical and virtual environments.

The AiR programme is currently greatly expanded through a collaboration with the Valletta 2018 Foundation responsible for Valletta´s programme for the European Capital of Culture.

The current residency is in Gozo (an island of the Maltese archipelago) and the duration of a residency is generally 2 weeks long however we also consider proposals with a different duration.

The residence in G?arb, provides an excellent studio space in a calm and tranquil environment that is characteristic of Gozo - a small island particularly rich in history and natural environment. The G?arb residence is a base for artists to operate from during their stay in the Maltese Islands however creatives and artists are however not limited to staying in Gozo but are also encouraged to visit and work within mainland Malta.
