Krakow-Katowice, Host Cities of the XII UCCN Annual Meeting | 12-15 June 2018
Krakow and Katowice, respectively Creative Cities of Literature and Music in Poland, and also jointly referred to as Krakowice, will be hosting the XII UCCN Annual Meeting from 12 to 15 June 2018.
The XII Annual Meeting in Krakowice will be themed “Creative Crosscroads”, building on the idea of cross-sectoral cooperation between Creative Cities. This major Network’s gathering will once again provide an excellent opportunity for all members to showcase, share and discuss joint-initiatives, as well as to identify concrete projects, policies and programmes putting culture and creativity at the core of sustainable urban development, examples of the local and international implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, notably its city-related Goal 11 on making “cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”.
“Our vision is to build a programme and provide an experience that is reflective of our strengths: our role as a connector and our role as a mine for vast creative resources. This didactic work reflects our strong belief that together we will achieve more as a macro-regional creative cooperative. We invite you to Krakow UNESCO City of Literature and Katowice UNESCO City of Music for a unique and interdisciplinary encounter with culture and creativity.”
– Prof. Jacek Majchrowski, Mayor of Krakow & Ph.D. Marcin Krupa, Mayor of Katowice
