Red de Ciudades Creativas
La Red de Ciudades Creativas pone en contacto a ciudades creativas de tal manera que puedan compartir conocimientos, saber hacer, experiencia, habilidades directivas y tecnología. Las ciudades pueden solicitar la admisión a la Red y adherirse al programa, asegurándose así la posibilidad de jugar un continuo rol como centros de excelencia creativa apoyando al mismo tiempo a otras ciudades, especialmente a aquellas pertenecientes a países en desarrollo, a cultivar su propia economía creativa.
