Future creative cities - Why culture is a smart investment for cities

  • culture
  • economy

Our new report reflects on innovative local cultural policies and sets out a vision for the future of cultural and creative place-making at local and regional levels.

It stems from three year of peer learning activities involving above 150 cities and regions as part of Culture for Cities and Regions, a €1M initiative by the European Commission fully funding by Creative Europe between 2015 and 2017.

Our report presents concrete examples aiming to tackle key cultural challenges at local level. These include: facing the demographic challenge; empowering audience; and developing better partnerships between local administrations and cultural and creative spaces.

We also invite you to read an article by Anna Lisa Boni, secretary general, EUROCITIES, and Philippe Kern, managing director, KEA European Affairs on the contributions made by cities to shaping culture.
