Designated UNESCO city for media arts in 2013, Enghien-les-Bains, located at the gates of Paris, coordinates the media arts creative field. For more than 15 years, the city has been committed to innovation and creativity. Through the strong commitment of the Centre des arts (CDA), the city is supporting media arts in the fields of culture, education, tourism, economy and in the social sector, by working to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Two major events showcase digital creation: the Paris Images Digital Summit, visual effects festival, each January and the International Media Arts Biennale, Bains numériques, in June. In 2017 Enghien-les-Bains hosted the 11th Annual Meeting of UNESCO Creative Cities.
