Annual Meetings

The Creative Cities Network Annual Meetings offer a unique occasion to strengthen the ties between cities. The objectives are to:
Exchange updated information on activities carried out by cities to implement the objectives of the Network and formulate new inter-city partnership initiatives;
Determine the Network’s strategy and operations, and agree upon important matters related to future developments; and
Offer a key platform of dialogue between the Creative Cities and UNESCO, regarding the Organization’s priorities on culture and development.
