Cultural policy is part of all walks of life, from food and travel to the arts and entertainment. These blog posts will touch on a number of matters surrounding my country of residence, Malta, Europe and the Mediterranean.
I have been active in cultural relations in the Euro-Med for 20 years. I have worked freelance, with civil society organisations, led preparations for the European Capital of Culture in Malta as executive director (2011-2017) and acted as culture attache’ in Brussels for Malta (2006-2011). I am a member of the scientific committee of The Phoenicians’ Cultural Route of the Council of Europe (http://fenici.net/en/), of the Brokering Intercultural Exchange Network (https://managingculture.net/), of the UNESCO Chair of Intercultural Dialogue in the Mediterranean (Tarragona) and the U40-Capacity Building Programme “Cultural Diversity 2030” initiated by the German UNESCO Commission. I read for a PhD in cultural relations in the Mediterranean at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona (2012) and an M.A. in European Cultural Policy and Management at the University of Warwick (2005) as a Chevening Scholar. My articles and papers are accessible at https://culturalpolicy.blog/.
