Classroom: valletta design cluster

The Valletta Design cluster will be hosting us for classroom venues and activities, including audiences sessions, evaluation and planning, communications and branding. The cluster emphasises the use of design thinking, collaboration, and adaptability as tools for community development by bringing people together via art. Students, designers, residents, academies, NGOs, and others are among the practitioners. Those who utilise the space are offered regular opportunities to present their ideas as a way of engaging with others and promoting personal and group practice, in addition to the regular cultural program.
