Blitz operates within a 400 year old Valletta townhouse, lovingly restored to its former glory while keeping all its features and character intact. Large blank walls and beautiful pattern-tiled floors can be found in every room on each of its three floors. The space is as versatile as it is beautiful and rich with history. After standing empty for decades, this building has found its purpose to host events of an artistic nature, as well perform its role as a space to go to for a community of artists, musicians, writers and actors. Housed within an original four-storey Valletta abode, Blitz is a unique space in the heart of the city that has recently been awarded the title of Capital of Culture 2018.
Blitz promises to bring you high calibre events and exhibitions where the medium and the message may be as varied as you can possibly imagine. There is no formula, or set rules; only a space to share ideas and enjoy the company of like-minded people.
The aim of a space such as this is to fill a considerable gap that exists in the local arts scene – that of independently run spaces, which are based on a regeneration of unused buildings, repurposing them and making them accessible to the public. It is not a space that is open all year round, but rather it is a space that will open and run on a 'project by project' basis. This does not mean that sustaining it is easy, but it does mean that you can be assured that when it is open, its events are worth visiting.
We welcome submissions for exhibitions and events to be included in our programme. Send your proposals and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
