Blitz is a space to develop ideas, build relationships and nurture creative talent. Blitz operates within a four-level, 400-year-old Valletta townhouse, which has been repurposed into a site for residencies, exhibitions and education, and a social space for the creative and the curious.

Blitz is a curated space with a focus on contemporary existence, its constant state of flux, and the ubiquitous presence of digital culture. Our mission is to work closely with artists, curators, writers and researchers who are articulating these trends through cross-media and trans-disciplinary practice. The Blitz Residency Programme is a core strand of its artistic and public programme, created to facilitate a long-term, international artistic cultural exchange, while fortifying our role as cultural incubator and advocate organisation for contemporary art practice in Malta.
