Norbert Francis Attard Foundation

Norbert Francis Attard  Founder of Valletta Contemporary and The Norbert Francis Attard Foundation


The Norbert Francis Attard Foundation (formerly known as The META Foundation) is the brainchild of founder Norbert Francis Attard, an artist who has been practicing his art for more than fifty years. The Foundation was set up to run the premises of Valletta Contemporary. At its core, Valletta Contemporary is an arts centre that champions the work of contemporary artists whose work is marked by originality and experimentation in diverse mediums and themes.  


Committed to making waves within the creative community, the Norbert Francis Attard Foundation provides a state-of-the-art venue to experience contemporary artworks and offers talented young Maltese artists a forum for their work. It also focuses on the internationalisation of the arts scene, by featuring a regular programme of international contemporary artists, showcasing both established names as well as emerging artists from around the world.
