The Valletta Design Cluster offers multiple opportunities for their regular members. In addition to our wide range of facilities, members have a rare opportunity to network and engage with people from a variety of disciplines. The Cluster also provides opportunities for the members to engage in workshops and discussions with experts in art, design, making, culinary arts and social impact.
But the Cluster is not just a space to work and develop yourself professionally, we also offer our members a space of respite in this ever-expanding urban landscape. Enjoy a coffee on one of our couches in the courtyard or escape upstairs to our Rooftop Garden, where you will be able to enjoy incredible view of the garden, the sea and the surrounding areas.
