The ACMlab series is Arts Council Malta’s regular platform for information, networking and matchmaking sessions as well as discussions and regular meetings with the sector.

As part of our commitment towards active brokerage in the cultural and creative sector, ACMlab will be our platform to share information and good practices, debate cultural matters and facilitate networking between peers and other stakeholders. In conjunction with these sessions, we will create and update a resource toolkit to support you as a creative professional or as an organisation active in the cultural and creative industries.
