CreArt (Network of Cities for Artistic Creation) is a European Network comprised of cities and public and private cultural institutions. Launched within the framework of the Culture Programme (2007-2013) its aim was to respond to certain needs shared by European cultural institutions: to maximise the economic, social and cultural contribution that the visual arts can make by better supporting artists, managers, the industry and the general public by allowing them to create, exhibit and enjoy works of art, as well as to access training through seminars, artist residences, workshops and research programmes.

The continuation of the CreArt network is a necessary step. The new programme will mean an increase in the mobility of artists and works and the professionalization of the artistic and creative sector of the cities. We also wish to establish connections with all the other sectors that can help the cultural, social and economic development of cities, maximizing the use of new technologies. In consequence, We find local administrations with a greater disposition towards the artistic sector.

We are convinced that for the training of the different cultural stakeholders, not just the artists but also managers, curators, entrepreneurs, politicians, media is a fundamental element for success. This is not only done for the artists or for the artistic sector but because we are convinced that art and culture creates jobs, attracts investors and stimulates the local economy. We are convinced that a city, when culturally alive, is both healthier and free.
