1.        Background​

The past decade has seen a shift in cultural policy from a focus on cultural and creative development to a wider understanding of the links between the cultural sector and the rest of society. A deeper understanding of the complexities and interdependencies involving the social, economic and environmental conditions and parameters of society has emerged. Whilst addressing the immediate needs of arts and culture and reaffirming the intrinsic value they bring to society, this policy also acknowledges the role culture has in tackling global issues such as democracy and collective action, climate change, and other matters related to social and environmental sustainability.

The way in which people access, create and experience culture is constantly changing, presenting new opportunities and challenges, thus the National Cultural Policy 2021 is an opportunity to re-examine the fundamental role of culture in public policy and renew the political commitment that champions the transversality of culture in Malta’s creative, social and economic development.
