The Global Alliance's Creative Cities Network , a UNESCO program instituted in 2005, recognizes cities world-wide with reputations as centers of excellence in Craft and Folk Art, Design, Gastronomy, Literature, Media Arts and Music. The program is intended to help creative cities share ideas on preserving and enhancing their cultural programs. Needless to say, cities in this program can also be appealing travel destinations for the traveller interested in the cities' creative speciality (and other things as well).
The programme is ongoing and UNESCO claims there are more than 20 further cities currently awaiting evaluation to join the scheme.
Current members of the Creative Cities Network are:
Native American Pottery, Santa Fe
UNESCO Cities of Craft and Folk Art
UNESCO Cities of Design
Interior of the glass dome of the Reichstag, Berlin
UNESCO Cities of Film
UNESCO Cities of Gastronomy
UNESCO Cities of Literature
The Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow is the city's largest indoor concert venue
UNESCO Cities of Media Arts
UNESCO Cities of Music
