Creative Cities

The Creative Cities category is devoted to cities that embrace culture and creativity. In this category, our readers can explore cities around the world that offer unique experiences and unique attractions that foster creativity and inspiration. We take a look at the museums, music venues, performing arts, markets, and open spaces, as well as some of the more traditional sightseeing spots. From street art to community events to grand architecture, Creative Cities celebrates the places that embrace the creative spirit.

We also share and highlight news from the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, a remarkable initiative by UNESCO that’s reshaping urban landscapes worldwide.  At the heart of Creative Cities lies a simple yet profound idea: embracing creativity as a strategic driver for sustainable urban development. By harnessing the power of artistic expression, these cities are redefining their identities, fostering social inclusion, and propelling economic growth.

The UNESCO Creative Cities is a network of 180 cities across 72 countries that have been designated for their exceptional contributions to one of seven creative fields: Crafts and Folk Art, Design, Film, Gastronomy, Literature, Media Arts and Music. From the literary brilliance of Dublin to the culinary mastery of Tucson, each city offers a unique tapestry of creativity and we share every new story about these cities.
