The Arabic edition of the UN Creative Economy Report 2013, will be launched in an event co-organized by UNESCO and the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation. It will take place during the Abu Dhabi Festival, and will be one of the Festival’s education programmes taking place at New York University, Saadiat Island, Abu Dhabi. The event will include a panel discussion with a keynote address by Anna Paolini, Director, UNESCO Doha Office, and will include international experts in cultural and creative industries.

The Report focuses on creative economy at the local level in developing countries. With many case studies from the Arab region, the evidence demonstrates how the cultural and creative industries are at the core of local creative economies and how they forge new development pathways that encourage creativity and innovation in the pursuit of inclusive, equitable and sustainable growth and development. Unlocking the potential of the creative economy also means promoting the overall creativity of societies.
