For issue 2 of Gbajniet we would like to suggest articles that are in review of artistic residencies, whether as an artist, host, or third party, and critical texts relating to this subject of the nomadic artisan and cross-cultural exchange. Though we are still open to articles on other subjects.

This e-zine is called Gbajniet, which in Maltese means little cheeses, and it is distributed across Malta and across the globe through the internet. Gbajniet brings opinions together from all walks of life, encourages cross-practice, cross-media, and international discourses, and the sharing of material from a deep and varied bank of artistic/cultural sources. Through the active support of yourself and others we are able to build a culturally relevant publication that is an earnest reflection of the current global cultural scene (if such a thing exists) and its interests.
