Two of the island’s top cultural organisations – Arts Council Malta (ACM) and the Foundation for the Promotion of Entrepreneurial Initiatives (FPEI) – have collaborated again to launch the second round of a training and mentorship programme for local artists and creatives.
First introduced last year, the Entrepreneurship programme for Creatives, Artists and Cultural Managers aims to support the growth of Malta’s creative or cultural sectors, by building the entrepreneurial skills of individuals or groups working within them.
The initiative is part of ACM’s Investment in Cultural Organisations (ICO) funding programme.
“At FPEI, we understand the power of combining an entrepreneurial mindset with art, creativity and culture,” FPEI and Zaar Manager Giselle Borg Olivier said.
Zaar, Malta’s only reward and donation-based crowdfunding platform, was the first initiative set up by the FPEI to offer an alternative source of funding to the island’s entrepreneurs.
“Following the success of the first round of this programme, we are excited to help more local artists and creatives do what they do best, while encouraging their entrepreneurial skills with alternative finance solutions,” Ms Borg Olivier added.
The partnership behind the programme between FPEI and ACM supports the overall objectives of both leading cultural organisations.
