Wiki Loves Art 2019 in Malta is a programme of activities occurring between January and April 2019 centred around documenting art in Malta. Space A presents Art from the Fondazzjoni Kreattività Collection 2013-2018, comprised of a selection of works that have been collected from events held at St James Cavalier and from the Spazju Kreattiv programme between the years 2013 and 2018. Space C displays a number of works from the Fondazzjoni Kreattività collection by women artists whose works have been exhibited at St James Cavalier between 2000 and 2018. Space B hosts an exhibition of the recent activities by Wikimedia Community Malta. Four Art Additives events are occurring in this period that support the documentation and legacy of the works being displayed. These events are organised by Spazju Kreattiv in collaboration with Wikimedia Community Malta, the M3P Foundation, the Gabriel Caruana Foundation, and the US Embassy Valletta.

The compilation of a detailed catalogue of Fondazzjoni Kreattività’s art collection – currently stored at St James Cavalier – has been ongoing since January 2016. Apart from works of art, the project is also identifying extensive documentation relating to creative projects, including proposals, press releases, photos, reviews, videos, and other material. In 2019, the project will host a display of archived pieces acquired between 2013 – 2018, along with related workshops, information-gathering sessions and talks. The overall research and archiving project is set to be completed in 2020 as part of Fondazzjoni Kreattività’s 20th Anniversary celebrations.

Wikimedia Community Malta (WCM) is an official affiliate of the San Francisco-based Wikimedia Foundation, supporting Wikipedia and other open knowledge projects. Established in 2016 to encourage the uptake of wiki activity in Malta, WCM has led three local editions of the international photography contest Wiki Loves Monuments, enabling the public to upload over 7,500 photographs of Maltese heritage monuments to Wikimedia Commons, where they can be used and shared freely on Wikipedia and elsewhere. In collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv and the M3P Foundation, WCM has also engaged with Wiki Loves Art and its annual edit-a-thon Art+Feminism to promote the documentation of art, and women artists, on the wiki platform. This exhibition highlights the annual activities of Wikimedia Community Malta, coinciding with the 2019 edition of Wiki Loves Art and Spazju Kreattiv’s Art+Feminism exhibition.
