The annual Valletta 2018 international conference builds upon the vital dialogue established during previous editions. Over three days, the conference explores the legacy of the Valletta 2018 European Capital of Culture (ECoC) title locally and across the European spectrum. Topics discussed range from the creation of community projects to the regeneration of previously derelict areas in Valletta, all of which can foster a more vibrant and diverse city.

The conference is an invitation to assess and discuss the changing nature of the city and the future of cultural activity in Valletta. These reflections allow for a deeper understanding of the long-term residual impact of the cultural, social and economic regeneration that took place in Valletta in the run-up to and throughout 2018, ahead of the presentation of the Evaluation and Monitoring results which will take place in 2019.
