As part of Valletta 2018, a year-long program to develop Valletta, Malta as Europe’s 2018 Cultural Capital, Fay Darmawi, Founder and Executive Producer of the SF Urban Film Fest will attend a week-long curatorial school on the historic campus of the University of Malta. A total of 55 students will attend daily lectures and workshops led by 5 internationally renowned curators, and will culminate in final presentations of student work. The European Union completely subsidizes the school for all students, European or not, highlighting the incredible government support of arts and culture there, in great contrast to the U.S.. I hear this strong legacy is changing but I will investigate and report back!
