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.

In developing a sustainable independent art space, Blitz programmes seek to engage new audiences in contemporary arts; investigate how access to high-quality exhibitions can be improved; and serve as the impetus to expand the local contemporary cultural infrastructure. Blitz aims to break down all barriers to the the enjoyment of contemporary art, engendering a culture which recognises the the positive effects of being culturally active for individuals, communities, and society at large.
