The Creative Cities’ commitment testifies to their central role at the frontline of sustainable development for communities.

By joining the Network, cities acknowledge their commitment to sharing best practices, developing partnerships that promote creativity and the cultural industries, strengthening participation in cultural life and integrating culture in urban development plans.
