The Valletta International Visual Arts (VIVA) festival serves as a platform for Maltese and international visual arts practitioners. VIVA offers professional education in the sector while also promoting and encouraging public participation in the arts.
The 2018 VIVA festival is built on the previous three editions of the festival. Its aim is to continue boosting growth in the local cultural scene, developing a unique platform for contemporary art in Malta. With a wide variety of local and international artists presenting recent work, VIVA is creating and enhancing international networks which will last beyond the festival.
