What is Shifting Contexts III?

Shifting Contexts III is a specific visual art project aimed to explore the critical role of art to respond to a rapidly changing world and to contribute to contemporary discourse. Shifting Contexts III encourages young artists to develop a creative proposal responding to the theme of WATER either individually or as a group art collective constituting up to 4 members. Creativity entails looking at familiar things from a completely novel perspective and Shifting Contexts III once again aspires to encourage and sustain this approach whilst at the same time it also seeks to promote collaborative practices in the arts. Participating artists and collectives must show that they have responded to the theme through practice-based research that explores innovative approaches to meaning-making that allow for different interpretations to emerge. 

Who is it For?

Applicants must be between the ages of 19 and 30 with Maltese ID or residence permit.

What will it do for me?
  • The short listed artists/ collectives will receive an honoraria to support their work
  • The projects, including aspects of the creative research process, will be presented in an exhibition at Spazju Kreattiv Valletta.
  • The best work will be awarded 600 EUR and the artists involved will be given support to set up their own dedicated exhibition at a later stage at Spazju Kreattiv.
