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

Residency durations vary between 2 to 4 weeks however we also consider proposals with a different duration.
