UNESCO Creative Cities network
The Creative Cities Network connects cities who want to share experiences, ideas and best practices for cultural, social and economic development.
Cities may apply to UNESCO to be endorsed by the Network and join the programme to ensure their continued role as centres of excellence and to support other cities, particularly those in developing countries, in nurturing their own creative economy.
Cities in Asia and Europe appointed to the Creative Cities Network include:
Edinburgh - UNESCO City of Literature
Bologna - UNESCO City of Music
Kobe - UNESCO City of Design
Lyon - UNESCO City of Media Arts
Shenzen - UNESCO City of Design
Kanazawa - UNESCO City of Crafts and Folk Art
