Creative Cities Network
Incubators of Creativity
The UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network is an international platform that encourages members to identify their creative assets and use them to build inclusive and balanced economic and cultural cities.
By joining the Creative Cities Network, cities commit to sharing good practice and developing partnerships to strengthen creative activities, goods, and services, develop hubs of creativity and innovation, and improve access to cultural life. The Network covers seven creative fields: Crafts and Folk Arts, Media Arts, Film, Design, Gastronomy, Literature, and Music.
