Creative Cities project

The Creative Cities project helps you to make your city a better place to live, work and play in. Whether you are a town planner, an architect, a city administrator, an artist, an NGO, a social worker, or simply someone who cares about where you live, this website has something for you. It gives you new ideas, new contacts, and new tools to use in your work. Creative Cities is a British Council project, set up in 2008. The project was developed in 15 countries across Europe. It provides a platform and a toolkit which can be used by individuals and organisations wherever you may be. Activities are now run largely independently of the British Council, but we continue to maintain this website and to co-ordinate use of the Future City Game and Urban Ideas BakeryThis project is implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF.”
“Creative Cities” stands for Development and Promotion of Creative Industry Potentials in Central European Cities.
It is an European project within the Central Europe Programme that foresees cooperation between five Central European cities: Leipzig (DE), Genoa (IT), Gdansk (PL), Ljubljana (SI) and Pecs (HU). The project specifically addresses creative industries that are defined as “those industries which have their origin in individual creativity, skill and talent and which have a potential for wealth and job creation through the generation and exploitation of intellectual property.”
