    This article is a travel topic

The Global Alliance's Creative Cities Network [1], 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
