ISLAND FORTRESS OR SOFT POWER REFUGE?
How can we use Soft Power to stimulate the creative economy?
Malta is one of the world’s great island fortresses from ancient times to World War II. Yet its very name means ‘refuge’. England is an island fortress that has provided refuge for many over recent centuries. As part of the celebration of Valletta’s Year as European Capital of Culture, Soft Power Destinations Award and Leading Cultural Destinations is hosting a workshop in London to explore how soft power is transforming both cities.
