Arts Council Malta

Previously known as the Malta Council for Culture and the Arts (MCCA), Arts Council Malta (ACM) is the national agency for development and investment in the cultural and creative sectors. Its central task is that of effectively funding, supporting and promoting the cultural and creative sectors in Malta

The Council manages a funding portfolio for the cultural and creative sectors through its national funding programmes. Its strategic areas of focus include: internationalisation education and development, creative entrepreneurship, diversity and communities, and research. Driven by their commitment to cultural rights, they invest in the arts to strengthen Malta’s creative and cultural ecology.

The Council has gone from a small entity to a restructured and much larger agency which is actively carving out its path as a cultural leader for the sector. The Council has also played a central role in events such as the 7th World Summit on Arts and Culture held in Valletta in 2016, the Cultural Export Programme of the Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union held in 2017 and Malta’s capital city Valletta as the European Capital of Culture in 2018.
