The Creative Cities Network is a project under the patronage of UNESCO. United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization ( UNESCO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations established on November 16 With the aim of celebrating and maintaining cultural diversity, the alliance formed by member cities share their experiences in promoting the local heritage, as well as discuss plans on how to cope with the influx of globalization. The Creative Cities Network aims to find and enrich a member city’s cultural identity in the midst of a growing trend towards internationalism.
The project focuses on the main product of excellence of these cities, and finds ways to maintain its relevance in city life, local economy and social development. The fields of excellence is classified among: Literature, Cinema, Music, Folk Art, Design, Media Arts, and Gastronomy.
Despite the general knowledge that change (towards modernity) is generated from the city, what the Network aims to do is to take advantage of adapting and harnessing the proliferation of technology and social development in order to further a city’s product of excellence. In doing so, the cities, in as much as being the catalyst in sailing to the future, also becomes the center for the protection of a past industry and its eventual protection.
