Miza is a Tirana based, non-for-profit, non-governmental organization working in the field of culture and contemporary art since its inception in 2012. It was created by three young artists sharing the common concern regarding the lack of exposing spaces for emerging artists. Through our activities we have identified, attracted and supported national and international emerging artists and have created a platform for cultural exchange. Our organisation aims to further consolidate this platform. Miza focuses mainly on contemporary art and it aims to exhibit works of different genres engaging in the contemporary arts approaches, trends and concerns. Apart from exhibitions, Miza organises workshops, artist-talks, documentary screenings etc.
For its first year, Miza operated as a self-financed artistic space, with the co-founders bearing all the costs of the activities.
