Abstract: Valletta should be a unique experience, open to all. This is Valletta 2018's key vision for the bustling capital. A group of people focused on making this a reality is the Valletta Design Cluster team. Located at the Old Abattoir site in Valletta, the initiative is going to create a community space for cultural and creative practice. According to Anna Wicher from the PDR International Centre for Design and Research, design is 'an approach to problem-solving that can be applied across the private and public sectors to drive innovation in products, services, society and even policymaking by putting people first.' This people-centred approach to design is not just a theoretical framework, but a concrete method that engages people in a co-creative process.
