Located in the heart of the Mediterranean ocean, the little island of Malta is cupped by Tunisia and Libya whilst on clear days, the shores of Sicily may be spotted from the historical capital Mdina.
At the crossroads between Southern Europe and North Africa, Western Europe and the Middle East, Malta has incessantly drawn individuals, civilizations and cultures from across the continents and over the centuries.
From Neolithic settlers to Phoenicians, Romans, and the Knights of St John, Malta’s culture has been shaped and influenced in unique ways by each passing force.
Today, the isle’s connected location, sunny skies and rich diversity attracts creatives to its shores from all four corners of the globe, inviting them to mingle with local creatives whilst celebrating the countless sources of inspiration Malta has to offer. Why Malta?
