Baku joins UNESCO Creative Cities Network
On the occasion of World Cities’ Day, celebrated on 31 October, UNESCO is designating 66 urban settlements that are to join the Organization’s Network of Creative Cities.
Baku is on the list in the Design category, according to the UNESCO website.
The Network, which now includes a total of 246 members, brings together cities that base their development on creativity, whether in music, arts and folk crafts, design, cinema, literature, digital arts or gastronomy.
"All over the world, these cities, each in its way, make culture the pillar, not an accessory, of their strategy. This favours political and social innovation and is particularly important for the young generations," UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said.
