Culture Pass is a joint initiative by Arts Council Malta and the Culture Directorate within the Ministry for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Governments.

Under this initiative, every student from kinder to post secondary education has the opportunity to experience a minimum of one artistic production a year produced by creative professionals and presented through a curated programme. This is one of the deliverables of Arts Council Malta’s Strategy2020.

The Culture Pass is designed to:

1) Provide children and students from kindergarten to the post-secondary schools or institutes which provide education up to MQF Level 4 with professional cultural and artistic experiences of the highest quality;

2) Complement the learning outcomes of the National Curriculum and add value to cultural education and curricular subjects and cross-curricular themes (literacy, digital literacy, learning to learn and cooperative learning, education for sustainable development, entrepreneurship, diversity and creativity and innovation);

3) Encourage creative practitioners to create and develop new work for young audiences and increase the programming capacity over longer periods with the purpose of connecting artistic and non-artistic disciplines to the students’ curriculum.

A Call for Expression of Interest for the submission/proposal of events of a cultural and artistic nature targeting children and students from Kindergarten, Primary and students attending Middle, Senior and post-secondary schools was held.
