Residency opportunities in Malta and Gozo with Fondazzjoni Kreattività


 Fondazzjoni Kreattività in Malta, formerly known at St. James Cavalier Centre for Creativity, is now inviting applications from creative artists in all fields to apply for an immersive and community-based artist-in-residence program for 2019. Residencies range from two to four weeks, with residencies and projects taking place between January 2019 and December 2019. Those interested should apply directly to Fondazzjoni Kreattività here.  Although the two entities are no longer in direct partnership VCCA encourages its Fellows to apply for any of the Fondazzjoni Kreattività’s residency program strands.

Fondazzjoni Kreattività and VCCA have exchanged artists, writers, and composers since 2001.  This wonderful partnership was celebrated this fall when VCCA’s Deputy Director Sheila Gulley Pleasants visited Valletta and attended a reunion of Maltese Fellows who had been in residence at Mt. San Angelo through the exchange. (photo)

Since the establishment of the exchange, 29 VCCA Fellows have pursued their creative work in Malta and twelve Maltese artists have journeyed to Virginia to find creative space and an artistic community far away from their island home.

The exchange between VCCA and St. James Cavalier Centre for Creativity was the brainchild of Maltese artist and VCCA Fellow Jean Zaleski.  Both VCCA and Malta were dear to Zaleski, and she was determined to bring them together. Thanks to her connections and perseverance, the partnership was established in 2001.  It was nurtured in its early years with the help of Joseph Paul Cassar, Chris Gatt, and Carmen Callus.

VCCA salutes Daniel Azzopardi, Justin Galea, and Artistic Director Dr. Toni Sant for their work in support of creativity and cultural exchange and wishes them success as they move forward with the new vision of Fondazzjoni Kreattività - Spazju Kreattiv.
