A great sense of happiness in Karlsruhe: The city joins the international UNESCO Creative Cities Network – the first german city in the category of Media Arts. The announcement was made by the Director-General of UNESCO in Paris. 

As a new member of the city network, Karlsruhe will enter into an exchange with major cities from all over the world. The UNESCO Creative Cities Network was created to promote cooperation with and among cities that have identified creativity as a strategic factor for sustainable urban development. During the one-year application process, about 40 institutions of culture, creative industries, research, science and the digital open-source field as well as municipal corporations and departments have joined in.
