>> About the Malta Creative Collective <<

Co-founded by Carla Grima and Rossella Frigerio in 2017, the Malta Creative Collective is an independent, purpose-led movement that brings together like-minded creatives currently based on the Mediterranean isle of Malta with the aim of facilitating constructive connections. Our motto? Collaboration beats competition – hands down. We’re here to lift each other up, not push each other down, because when an individual creative succeeds, then the entire creative community thrives.

>> About Julia Barker <<

Julia is Malta’s first and only KonMari consultant in training and the founder of Zen With Julia.

A recent arrival from London, where she worked in the education sector, Julia was inspired to make decluttering and organisation her career after successfully completing the KonMari process in her own family home. A long-running love of good interior design and a deep interest in the sustainability of our home and creative spaces complemented this move perfectly.

Julia’s tidying lessons involve working first with clients on their vision for the ideal life, home and creative space. Identifying creative ways to store and style possessions with her clients means that they quickly find increased mental and physical space to pursue their own creative interests more fully.

>> About Lily Agius’ Gallery <<

Lily Agius was born and raised in London, and studied for her first year of BA Hons. History of Art and Design at Manchester Metropolitan University, before moving to Malta to continue her degree at The University of Malta. Whilst on artist studio visits for her contemporary art course she knew she wanted to promote art and artists for a career, and soon after graduating, in 2005, she worked for The Malta Independent where she became the editor of a popular culture magazine – soon turning it into an ‘art’ orientated magazine promoting unknown, up and coming, and established artists and designers. Lily continues to edit magazines in Malta.

Lily organised her first exhibition in 2004 for English nude photographer Charles Roff, before picking up the pace with a string of exhibitions and other art and design related events. She opened her gallery in 2011 in the heart of the commercial town of Sliema, after years of searching for the right space, where she continues to promote Maltese and international fine art of all mediums.

Lily is known for her memorable exhibition openings, and energy.
