Strada Stretta is not simply a street, it is a brand; it possesses a nature and life of its own thanks to its historical and contextual associations. Having said that, it is also an area in desperate need of regeneration and therefore an ideal location within the capital for the arts to flourish. This is the context in which the Malta Arts Festival is seeking to present the visual arts in 2010. There will be no underlying theme; the common thread will be the context and the working space. Five Maltese artists will each interpret a space as they deem best, the outcome will be unveiled on July 2nd.
