Application to UNESCO Creative Cities Network
The UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) was created in 2004 to promote cooperation with and among cities that have identified creativity as a strategic factor for sustainable urban development.
San Antonio's rich culinary heritage is intertwined with our hospitality. Our friendly, welcoming environment starts at our dining tables, where our cuisine is deeply tied to family and culture. Recognizing the importance of this cultural heritage, the City of San Antonio and its partners are pursuing a UNESCO Creative City Designation under the theme of Gastronomy.
The application will be submitted on June 16, 2017. If San Antonio is selected it will join a network of 116 Members from 54 countries covering seven creative fields: Crafts & Folk Art, Design, Film, Gastronomy, Literature, Music and Media Arts. Cities will be informed of their selection on October 31.
