With the collaboration of over 200 creatives, Spazju Kreattiv’s programme features a selection of performance, visual arts, cinema screenings and artists’ residencies.

Fondazzjoni Kreattività Chairman Rupert Cefai said: “We are proud to have built on what was achieved in previous years, and maintaining Spazju Kreattiv’s place as the national catalyst for creativity.”

The programme will include around 21 exhibitions, 20 performances and 400 cinema screenings, as well as the ŻiguŻajg Festival for children and young people. Theatre-goers will be treated to two Spazju Kreattiv co-productions this season, namely De-Terminated, which is written and directed by Herman Grech and Reppublika Immakulata by Dù Theatre.

Spazju Kreattiv Artistic Director Toni Sant said: “It is through long-term collaborations, both locally and internationally, that we have achieved this exciting programme. We are looking forward to continuing this work in the year to come and beyond.”

In fact, 2019 will see major strides forward to Spazju Kreattiv’s international portfolio, as it will be participating in the Ostrale Biennale in Germany next summer with works by some 15 artists.

Meanwhile, the Artists’ Residency programme is set to continue and will see Spazju Kreattiv hosting seven international artists from as far afield as Australia, the US and Canada who will work in Malta and Gozo in diverse disciplines.

“As this programme demonstrates, Spazju Kreattiv continues to grow and develop,” Mr Sant continued. “We are also pleased to present new updates to the building itself, with much work having taken place over the summer.
