Get Involved
Would you like to get involved in Valletta’s journey to European Capital of Culture, 2018?

This section explains what we’re asking of you now, some six years from our coveted year in the spotlight, and how we can help you realise your Vision 18.

We’ve identified some groups we feel have an active role to play in developing projects. But we’d like to hear from anyone with a good idea to shape and share or who wants to simply be involved in our proposed ECoC year.

QUESTIONS: ABOUT IDEAS FOR V.18
What kind of ideas are we talking about?
Ideas for V.18 come in all shapes and sizes. You can outline your idea in a sentence or submit an entire proposal. We’d like you to be free to explore. Try to think how your ideas could fall under one or more of our eight themes. You can also span themes, bringing several together in one project. Browse some ideas in our showcase as a catalyst to yours.
Who can submit ideas?
Anyone can!  Strong ideas are often those worked on together in groups comprising contrasting views and complementary skills. In brief, we welcome any ideas, so feel free to submit your ideas using the box here or by email.
How do I share my ideas?
You can send us your ideas using the box on this page or email us. Think about using V.18’s Facebook and Twitter spaces to crowd source help as well. Ask around to see if someone else would like to be involved in your idea. We’ll help you to connect with others thinking along your lines.
QUESTIONS: ABOUT GETTING INVOLVED
Do I need to partner up?
V18 is about collaborating to give projects more resources and visibility. Is there someone you’d like to connect with? Are there communities we’ve not listed? Let us know. We’ll guide you to like-minded groups and be on hand to help you research and grow your project ideas.
How do I get involved now?
There's plenty of scope to be part of Malta’s ECoC initiative from the start. We’re already looking for input to bring our themes to life. Check our news for V.18 events, such as workshops and info sessions. Add your voice by joining us on Facebook and Twitter too.
And what about later on?
As 2018 draws closer, we’ll need a host of help from a diversity of people and entities. There will be opportunities for everyone who wants to be part of V.18, from volunteers during the year’s events to staff in our expanded team, and options for business as partners on projects.
