The main goal of the M3P is to provide an inclusive repository for memories of Malta's media and associated arts, ensuring that these are kept in posterity for current and future generations.
We're constantly rethinking what should be included or linked on the Main Page. Further suggestions and comments are very welcome on the M3P:Community Portal talk page.
- Discussion on regular contributions from the scene are handled through the M3P Community Portal.

Support & Collaboration
M3P was originally created as the Malta Music Memory Project in 2010, supported in part by the Malta Arts Fund of the Malta Council for Culture and the Arts and the University of Hull's Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and School of Arts & New Media. Further support for the creation of the project was provided by the British Academy, Jisc, the National Archives of Malta, the Open Preservation Foundation, and the Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector. In 2016 the M3P name moved beyond the idea of a music memory project to the Malta Media Memory Preservation initiative, stemming systematicall from the original project.
The M3P Foundation has also entered into formal collaboration agreements with the Malta Broadcasting Authority (since 2014) and Fondazzjoni Kreattivitá (since 2015). We also work very close with Malta's National Archives.
The main M3P project is never ending. That is really not an overstatement. There are a number of smaller projects that we are actively focused on. These include:
- Documenting the Fondazzjoni Kreattività Art Collection
