The Malta Arts Fund aims to invest in quality artistic initiatives and development both in Malta and internationally. The fund forms part of Arts Council Malta’s development funding portfolio.

The newly-redesigned Malta Arts Fund will be divided into three main strands: Research Support Grant, Project Support Grant and Multi-Annual Grant.

The Research Support Grant seeks to invest in practice-led research with the aim of supporting creative practitioners to research and develop artistic work.

The Project Support Grant supports the development of high-quality artistic projects.

The Multi-Annual Grant aims to invest in high-quality projects with a longer timeframe and which focus on international collaborations.
