Call for Proposals: Frequently Asked Questions

Will I be able to get a cost estimate for my project requirements at Spazju Kreattiv?
We can provide you with an indicative cost of your project proposal upon receipt of a detailed cost breakdown. A final estimate of costs will be provided ahead of the formal agreement, entered into by both parties when the proposed work has been programmed to the agreed dates.

Does my project proposal need to fit in with all the keywords listed in the Selection Criteria?
The proposal needs to have a focused creative concept that directly relates to at least one of the main strategic vision points: identity, diversity, and legacy. A better understanding of these 3 points can be found on our cover page for the application.

Am I allowed to apply within the following call for proposals if my project is not chosen for the current call for proposals?
Yes, if your project is not chosen within the first round of decisions you may apply for the next call for proposals, as long as you take into consideration any and all official feedback given to you after the first application.

Would Spazju Kreattiv consider funding the project proposed?
Spazju Kreattiv is not primarily a funding body. However if the project is accepted and deemed to be of exceptional quality by the Artistic Director, the Centre may discuss alternative funding solutions with the applicant.

What are the Spazju Kreattiv’s operations?
Spazju Kreattiv provides space, equipment and other technical services, as well as professional creative management services, as needed. Each proposal will be discussed and quoted accordingly once the project has been accepted for inclusion in the centre’s programme.

What other operational considerations are there for projects using the centre’s space?
There are two main things to consider:
Operational Hours: The Centre operates daily between 6am and midnight. If the applicant requires access to the space beyond that time-frame, extra service fees will need to be covered along with other established expenses/costs.
Health & Safety: All projects must abide to EU health and safety regulations.

Once this current call closes will there be other call for proposals which are open?
There is usually a gap of only a couple of days between the different Call for Proposals thus giving the opportunity for creatives to engage with the Spazju Kreattiv programme. Any time-frames are usually outlined in the specific call as deemed necessary.
