First UNESCO Creative Cities of Spain Meeting to Map Out Joint Projects
On 10 October, UNESCO Creative Cities in Spain held a first meeting at the headquarters of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), linked to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Madrid, with representatives from five of the seven Spanish member cities taking part. The event was attended by Bilbao (Design), Burgos (Gastronomy), Dénia (Gastronomy) Granada (Literature) and Terrassa (Film).
The key objective was to exchange opinions and map out a joint vision for the future, as well as to promote the Network through the Ministry. Several common features among the cities were put forward, with their various challenges and realities, while the need for an agreement to carry out a biannual follow-up was proposed.
