VCCA (Virginia Center for the Creative Arts) is one of the largest artists' communities in the nation. Tucked into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, VCCA has awarded fellowships to thousands of our best national and international writers, composers and visual artists. This blog tells their story—their achievements and the work they are doing in your area and around the world. VCCA news is here, too: events, fellowships, opportunities.
VCCA. Because creative space is a creative edge.

VCCA Fellows in Residency on Mediterranean Island
VCCA Fellow Brian T. Silberman sent this photo from St. James Cavalier Centre for Creativity in Valletta, Malta, where he is enjoying a residency as part of VCCA's international exchange program. Housed in a 16th century fort, St. James Cavalier is now a contemporary art complex of galleries, theaters, music halls and cafes. Its recent renovation was part of the Maltese government's Millennium Project, a strong commitment to support the contemporary creative scene in Malta.
Each year, one VCCA playwright and one VCCA artist is given the opportunity to work and explore this extraordinary Mediterranean island for six weeks. This year, artist John Humphries is in residency in Malta through July 28, and playwright Brian Silberman is there through July 17.
The next deadline to apply for a residency at St. James Cavalier Centre for Creativity is December 1, 2011.
