In its second edition, the Valletta International Visual Arts Festival 2015 will continue to build on last years successful launch in serving as a new platform for Maltese and international visual arts practitioners. VIVA offers professional education in the sector while promoting and encouraging public participation in the arts.

With this year’s programme, VIVAs aim is to boost growth in the local cultural scene in an international context, while developing a unique platform for contemporary art in Malta. With a wide variety of local and international artists presenting recent work or collaborating in joint projects, VIVA is creating and enhancing international networks which will last far beyond the festival itself.
