Bilbao sees the UNESCO City of Design as a commitment which generates synergies; an international strategic framework, capable of optimising resources and boosting incentives.

This new journey that Bilbao has undertaken within the UNESCO Creative Cities Network has the firm and resolute backing of the implicated institutions, the agreement of the organisations working towards creativity and design in the region, and the enthusiasm and commitment of professionals and citizens.

The City has a long tradition regarding cultural life. Significant efforts have been made in the creation of policies, support programmes, new infrastructures, and contemporary events in order to enable citizen participation and open up this area to as many collectives as possible.
