Valletta Design Cluster seeks to grow its creative community
Budding designers, makers, entrepreneurs, and freelancers building a business or career in design-related disciplines and maker-based practices can now have an operative base in the heart of Malta’s capital city, thanks to the Valletta Design Cluster’s studio membership scheme, which is now open.
Whether the base is needed for a year or three to grow a creative business, or just for a few months to work on an exciting project, the Cluster provides flexible studio membership to accommodate the needs of any creative or group. Along with exclusive access to a studio, the membership offers state of the art facilities, including a fully-equipped Makerspace with space and equipment to work in wood, metal, electronics, textile, 3D printing, and more providing the resources to explore, experiment, and create. The Cluster’s Foodspace is also open for culinary creatives, offering two industry-level kitchens for prototyping and experimenting.
NGOs, start-ups, and microenterprises exploring projects in architecture, fashion, robotics, or product design, among others, can benefit from all that the Cluster has to offer through this call for membership, whilst individuals can team up to share a studio between them. And, with the growing community of members, they will find plenty of opportunities for collaboration and exchange of ideas.
The Valletta Design Cluster will be holding weekly open sessions on Thursday afternoons to visit the studios and the facilities until the deadline, which is on Friday 30th June at noon.
The Valletta Design Cluster, which forms part of the Valletta Cultural Agency, is excited to welcome new members within its community, to continue building a space for cultural and creative practice led by collaboration and experimentation.
