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.


Museum of Invented Cultures – Valletta Primary School

Inspired from Oħloq Kultura, a Valletta 2018 education project, Museum of Invented Cultures plays upon the fact that 2018 is the European Year for Cultural Heritage, by using objects from the different cultures coming from children’s stories in schools and turning them into artefacts in this intergalactic museum. This will be a Museum of 12 different models, made by visual artists/craftsmen, inspired by the ideas collected from children from different schools.

San Pawl taż-Żgħar – Il-Festa tat-Tfal

This year’s children’s version of the local feast of St. Paul in Valletta gets a special Valletta 2018 twist. As the Valletta 2018 Opening comes just a week before the local feast of St. Paul in Valletta, on this day there will be a smaller children’s version of the feast, where the children lift a small statue of St. Paul around Valletta. The children’s festa is starting from St. Ursula Street, roaming around the streets of Valletta and ending in St. Paul Street, corner with St. Lucia Street.
