The Hatchery Initiative / Malta Social Innovation Open Mic

Are you starting up a social impact project? Or have an idea you want to get off the ground? Want to learn about initiatives that others are working on? Come and share your idea and progress at the Social Innovation Open Mic.

The Social Innovation Open Mic is a community show-and-tell platform where community members can discuss ideas about upcoming, ongoing, or unfinished projects. Participants are invited to share conceptual advice, production issues, and resources to push forward their projects in the context of an informal community network of practitioners. By doing so, participants can gain insight into the individual practices in our community. The format is casual and informal, you can present your project by answering the following questions in 6 mins (+Q&A):

1. What’s the idea?

2. What’s the plan? / What did you do?

3. What do you need? / What did you learn?

A projector screen is also available for displaying images/slides. If you are interested to present a project, please contact us on the following e-mail (, or turn up at the event!

The Hatchery Initiative is a meet-up event to support local action and social innovation. This meet-up initiative aims to bring people together to share needs and resources linked to concrete practices and skills. The hatchery builds on a first impulse originating from local initiatives and brings together a variety of organisations and groups for meetings, informal consultancy, and workshops.  The idea of this event derives from an open session about Collective Action & the Sharing Economy that was co-organised by the Valletta Design Cluster, the Valletta 2018 Research team, and LOCOP. The Gabriel Caruana Foundation will be hosting this event at The Mill.
