Gozo Contemporary aims at introducing artists and organizations to the island of Gozo - a unique and creative environment that has inspired artists for more than 7000 years. Gozo Contemporary’s mission is to develop Gozo as a meeting place for creative people from around the globe for both Maltese and international artists. This multi-functional space will host contemporary artists by providing a working and living space for the artists in residence.
These residencies are intended as professional development opportunities for contemporary artists. Work on collaborative projects or interdisciplinary activity is particularly encouraged. Whilst all mediums are permissible, Installation, Performance, Literature, Music and the showing of Videos are particularly encouraged.
The island of Gozo is part of the Maltese archipelago. Gozo is 67 sq.km in size, which is approximately the same size as Hong Kong Island and has a population of about 32,000. Gozo Contemporary is situated in Gharb (meaning West in Arabic), a quaint village located at the westernmost point on the island.
