In 2018, two UNESCO Creative Cities in Poland – Krakow and Katowice – will join forces to host the prestigious Annual Meeting of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN). Delegates from nearly 200 cities and 6 continents will arrive in Poland to take part in debates, plenary sessions, workshops, cultural activities and more! The conference theme “Creative Crossroads” will explore opportunities for innovations that are born from cross-sectoral cooperation and collaboration.

Till today, the UCCN Annual Meeting has been held in cities such as Chengdu (China), Kanazawa (Japan), or Östersund (Sweden). What distinguishes the upcoming summit are the combined efforts of Krakow UNESCO City of Literature and Katowice UNESCO City of Music to organize this prestigious gathering. This will be the first instance that two cities in the network co-organize the event.

During the nearly week-long itinerary, the delegates will participate in formal plenary sessions, which will tackle issues like the strategic development of the Network, and sub-group meetings and workshops in each creative field (film, music, literature, media arts, design, gastronomy, crafts and folk art). Official meetings for the UCCN Steering Committee are also planned. This is especially key, as Krakow has served as the Coordinator of the Cities of Literature and one of seven members of the UCCN Steering Committee since 2014. The delegates will also have a platform to present international projects and to share best practices.

It is not by accident that the Annual Meeting will take place in June. Two important cultural events in the festival calendars of the two Host Cities will coincide with the Annual Meeting — the Miłosz Poetry Festival and the Garden of Sounds World Music Festival.  Both cities will be officially presented as the 2018 hosts during the 2017 Annual Meeting, which takes place this year in the French city of  Enghiens-les-Bains in June.

In our third year of membership in the Creative Cities Network, Katowice will be a co-organizer of the most important annual event of the Network. It is a great honour for our city. I treat it as recognition of the innovative and ambitious municipal programme for the development of the music and creative industries in Katowice. I am delighted that our partner is Krakow, which has supported us continually over the years on our path from a post-industrial city to a city of the creative industries. – said Marcin Krupa, President of the City of Katowice.

I welcomed the news of Krakow and Katowice’s success with great pride and joy. It is an honour for us to host the UCCN Annual Meeting - said Jacek Majchrowski, President of the City of Krakow. The presence of such distinguished delegates from around the world in our two cities is not only an opportunity to better integrate the network or the exchange best practices, but also to underscore the value and contribution of knowledge and creativity in the sustainable development of cities.
