Our projects bring culture to everyone’s doorstep, uniting the traditional vision of a Mediterranean life enriched by close ties to family, friends and neighbours with the island’s growing creative practices. Come to the capital to discover diverse themes at play in and around Valletta’s streets during our Opening Week.
Valletta Stories – Around Valletta
Everyone has a story to tell, but who can tell Valletta’s stories best if not its own residents? Residents will be invited to take visitors through Valletta, all its nooks and corners, and talk about living in Valletta, what Valletta means to them; so visitors will get the chance to explore Valletta like they never have before: through the eyes of its own community.
- 15-19 January – morning and afternoon
- 20 January – morning
