Mapping the islands – Festivals

Malta International Arts Festival The festival champions the best that the local arts scene has to offer, providing Maltese artists, both established and emerging, a dynamic platform to showcase their art and engage with broader audiences. MIAF crosses boundaries and promotes the freedom of artistic expression through a programme that embraces site-specific curation, music, visual arts, theatre, dance, opera, installations, films, community projects, interactive and participatory events, and education, in multidisciplinary fashion, through celebrating the past, but also promoting the art of our time, mostly in venues and spaces of massive historical significance.

Notte Bianca Notte Bianca is Malta’s biggest annual arts and culture festival. For one special night every October, Notte Bianca lights up the Valletta cityscape with a spectacular celebration that is open to the public free of charge.
