A strategic vision for the Centre for Creativity was launched in November 2014, outlining a focus on identity, diversity and legacy. The Centre’s programme aims to revolve around these core themes, with particular emphasis as follows:
IDENTITY: creativity, art, and culture are different concepts related to one another. Who we are as a creative community depends on a clear understanding of the differences and overlaps between these three constructs. Proposals that acknowledge creativity as their foremost concern will be viewed more favourably than others that do so less clearly.
DIVERSITY: Spazju Kreattiv seeks to present innovative work, encouraging creativity over other aspects of artistic expression. Simultaneously, as per the Fondazzjoni Kreattività’s Mission Statement: we seek to act as “a catalyst for all forms of expression, by providing space and extending experience to reach all people and involve them in interactive participation.” Proposals that engage new audiences as active participants and/or underrepresented formats of work are therefore deemed in line with this aspect of the Centre’s strategic vision.
LEGACY: knowing where we come from and what we’re leaving behind are essential qualities of engagement with aspects of legacy. While being aware of our heritage and how this informs new work, it is also necessary that works presented at the Centre for Creativity demonstrate what will be left behind. This will provide the opportunity for future generations to appreciate the creative efforts presented in our time. Proposals with a strong sense of legacy component clearly address this core theme actively adopted by the Centre for Creativity.
