Number 442 16 November 2023



Hello  ACORNS subscriber

While there is plenty of international activity at national government level including the 42nd session of the UNESCO General Conference – which we continue to monitor and analyse, this month we highlight the important role of cities in arts and cultural policy. On World Cities Day (October 31, 2023), 55 cities from diverse regions around the world joined the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) in recognition of their innovative approaches to human-centered urban planning that leverage culture and creativity as integral parts of their development strategies. With the latest additions, the network has now expanded to include 350 cities across over one hundred countries, encompassing seven creative domains: Crafts and Folk Art, Design, Film, Gastronomy, Literature, Media Arts, and Music. The new cities are set to join other members of the network in Portugal in July next year for the 2024 UCCN Annual Conference, where they will work together to fortify their resilience in the face of ever-evolving challenges such as climate change, growing inequality, and the rapid pace of urbanisation, given that an estimated 68 percent of the world's population will reside in urban areas by 2050. The conference's theme, Bringing Youth to the Table for the Next Decade, underscores the network’s commitment to involving the younger generation in shaping their cities' futures.

Another global platform of cities, the World Cities Culture Summit (WCCS) will convene in Dubai next year from 30 October – 1 November 2024, marking the first time that the event will be hosted in the MENA region. With over 40 member cities worldwide, this forum seeks to underscore the multifaceted impact of culture on global cities and the lives of their residents, emphasising culture's pivotal role in societal and economic growth and sustainable urban development.

Finally, later this month, cities, local governments, and organisations dedicated to implementing cultural and sustainable policies and programmes will assemble at the fifth United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) Culture Summit in Dublin from 28 November – 1 December 2023. The Summit will discuss the Culture Goal proposal, championed by the global campaign #culture2030goal and included in UNESCO's Mondiacult declaration in 2022. The gathering seeks to send a clear and evidence-based message to the international community that culture is integral to sustainable development. IFACCA will be represented by our Chair Ms Kristin Danielsen and Magdalena Moreno Mujica, our Executive Director. Ms Danielsen, as Director of Arts and Culture Norway, will participate in the session dedicated to cultural rights on 29 November, and Ms Moreno Mujica will participate in the session dedicated to culture as a goal in the SDGs on 30 November

The increasing prioritisation of arts, culture and creativity by city and local governments for sustainable development and urban planning once again underscore their recognition of the powerful catalyst these elements can be. Beyond enhancing the vibrancy of cities, they foster economic growth, social cohesion, and environmental sustainability. By integrating culture and creativity into urban strategies, governments are creating more inclusive, resilient, and prosperous communities for the present and future.

IFACCA Announcements

IFACCA at key Latin American and Ibero-American meetings

Magdalena Moreno Mujica, IFACCA’s Executive Director will be a speaker at the II Regional Policy Dialogues (RPD) on Cultural and Creative Industries with an Intersectoral Approach. Held in Lisbon, Portugal 14 and 15 November, this gathering provides a space to rethink the role of the cultural and creative sector and ensure that its contribution and agenda align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

The dialogue will bring together Ministries of Culture, Arts, and Heritage from Latin America, representatives from Ministries of Productive and Economic Development, Environment and Climate Change, Tourism, innovation agencies, among others, along with representatives from the private sector whose agendas include the creative economy sectors; and offers new opportunities for intersectoral collaboration, focusing on the value chain of CCIs and their intersection with other sectors to generate greater impact and innovation. 

Immediately following, the VIII edition of the Ibero-American Congress of Culture will also take place in Lisbon between 15 – 17 November 2023, jointly hosted by the General Secretary of the Ibero-America (SEGIB), Organization of the Ibero-American Space (OEI) and the Ministry of Culture of Portugal. The VIII Lisbon Congress, on the theme of Culture, Citizenship and Cooperation, will reflect on culture as a global public good and on its transversal importance in public policies to increase the sustainable development of territories, favour cooperation, build a more active citizenship and create the conditions for the comprehensive fulfilment of human rights, among which are cultural rights. All key issues on IFACCA’s agenda and an important opportunity to connect with members, government agencies advancing culture and key stakeholders in the Ibero-American Space.

Las ciudades adoptan la cultura para el desarrollo sostenible: la vía hacia adelante

Aunque seguimos analizando la actividad internacional a nivel interestatal, como la 42ª reunión de la Conferencia General de la UNESCO, este mes nos centramos en el importante papel de las ciudades en la política artística y cultural. En el Día Mundial de las Ciudades (31 de octubre de 2023), 55 ciudades de distintas regiones del mundo se unieron a la Red de Ciudades Creativas de la UNESCO en reconocimiento a sus innovadores enfoques para una planificación urbana centrada en las personas, con la cultura y la creatividad como parte integral de sus estrategias de desarrollo. Con las últimas adhesiones, la red incluye ya 350 ciudades en más de cien países y siete ámbitos creativos: artesanía y artes populares, diseño, cine, gastronomía, literatura, artes multimedia y música. Las nuevas ciudades se unirán a los otros miembros de la red en Portugal en julio del año próximo en la Conferencia Anual de la Red de Ciudades Creativas, en la que colaborarán para fortalecer su resiliencia frente a desafíos como el cambio climático, la creciente desigualdad y el rápido ritmo de urbanización, dado que el 68% de la población mundial habitará áreas urbanas en 2050. El tema de la Conferencia, Incorporar a la juventud en la discusión para la próxima década, subraya la intención de la Red de contar con las nuevas generaciones para diseñar el futuro de sus ciudades.

Otra plataforma internacional de ciudades, la Cumbre de Cultura de Ciudades Mundiales (WCCS) se reunirá en Dubái el año próximo los días 30 de octubre a 1 de noviembre de 2024, siendo la primera vez que la cumbre se celebre en un país de Oriente Medio y Norte de África. El foro reúne a más de 40 miembros en todo el mundo para subrayar el multifacético impacto de la cultura en las ciudades globales y en las vidas de sus habitantes, destacando el papel fundamental de la cultura en el crecimiento social y económico y en el desarrollo urbano sostenible.

Por último, a finales de mes se reunirán ciudades, gobiernos locales y organizaciones dedicadas a la implementación de programas y políticas culturales y sostenibles en la quinta Cumbre de Cultura de las Ciudades y Gobiernos Locales Unidos (CGLU) en Dublín, los días 28 de noviembre a 1 de diciembre de 2023. La Cumbre analizará la propuesta de un Objetivo de cultura, promovido por la campaña global #culture2020goal y recogido en la Declaración de la UNESCO en Mondiacult 2022. El encuentro busca mandar a la comunidad internacional un mensaje claro y con buena base empírica que la cultura es parte integral del desarrollo sostenible. Representarán a IFACCA en la Cumbre su presidenta, Kristin Danielsen, y su directora ejecutiva, Magdalena Moreno Mujica. La Sra. Danielsen participará como directora de Artes y Cultura de Noruega en la sesión dedicada a los derechos culturales el 29 de noviembre y la Sra. Moreno Mujica participará en la sesión dedicada a la cultura como objetivo en los ODS el 30 de noviembre.

La creciente prioridad otorgada a las artes, la cultura y la creatividad por los gobiernos locales en su planificación urbanística y desarrollo sostenible es un reconocimiento de su poderoso papel catalizador. Además de energizar a las ciudades, la cultura y la creatividad promueven el crecimiento económico, la cohesión social, y la sostenibilidad medioambiental. Al integrar la cultura y la creatividad en sus estrategias urbanas, los gobiernos crean comunidades más inclusivas, resilientes y prósperas, en el presente y en el futuro.
