Our strategy
Pages
We have identified five goals and established 70 actions to address with three groups in the next five years. This strategy is inspired by Malta’s national cultural policy, government’s electoral programme, our legal remit, as well as our vision and mission. With 2018 set as the fulcrum of our plan, we are building towards the Valletta European Capital of Culture and simultaneously working towards its legacy for post-2020 cultural development.

Funds & Opportunities
Pages
Our funding portfolio will address a variety of projects in the arts, media and other creative industries. We will position creative practitioners and their development at the core of a portfolio designed to invest in processes that matter most to those shaping our creative future. From project funding for an experimental artwork to seed capital for a creative start-up, we want to continue building a diverse funding portfolio that matches the specificities of creating culture. When funding an initiative or an organisation, we are committing ourselves to trusting the beneficiary with public funds to achieve the goals set out in the application and demanding the delivery of quality that our funders have trusted us to invest in.
