UNESCO Creative Cities Network Reaffirms Commitment to Cultural Cooperation for Sustainable Development

UNESCO Creative Cities Network

UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) Annual Meeting 2018 held in Krakow (Poland) from 12 to 15 June 2018 adopted a “Mayors’ Declaration” on how to advance the implementation of the United Nations Agenda 2030 in cities through culture. Over 350 participants, including 50 mayors and deputy mayors from across the globe, reaffirmed their cities’ commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

The UCCN currently has 180 member cities, from 72 different countries. They work together to place creativity and cultural industries at the heart of their development plans at the local level and actively cooperate at the international level across seven creative fields: Crafts and Folk Arts, Design, Film, Gastronomy, Literature, Media Arts, and Music.

“In Medellín we understand that cultural and creative industries can generate decent work and economic growth that impacts the entire city, helping to reduce poverty and improving the quality of life. Through art, we can better communicate with the communities and make necessary changes,” declared Lina Botero Villa, Secretary of Culture of Medellin (Colombia).

Spurred on by this year’s theme “Creative Crossroads” the Creative Cities explored new cooperation prospects. Cities of Joao Pessoa (Brazil), Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) and Porto-Novo (Benin) envisaged linking their crafts sectors to expand opportunities for their artisans at the international level. “Our role is to promote, guide and enable the emergence of creative forces. This meeting represents a unique opportunity for my city to broaden its international outreach and exchange with my peers,” said Nathanaël Ouedraogo, Deputy Mayor of Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso).

Five thematic workshops and networking sessions allowed cities to advance the role of culture, mainly through creativity, as an enabler of sustainable development. Among the topics addressed were the need for reliable data collection, measurement, and monitoring processes for culture, the impact of digital technologies in shaping the city of tomorrow, urban regeneration, and youth.

The Annual Meeting provided an opportunity to showcase the UCCN LAB.2030 Initiative, which demonstrates diverse ways in which the Creative Cities embrace innovation and culture in their local policies.

The UNESCO Creative Cities Network is working towards strengthening cooperation on creativity and heritage as a foundation for making cities more inclusive, resilient and sustainable.

The city of Fabriano (Italy) will host the next Annual Meeting in 2019 with the focus on the theme of “The Ideal City.”

UNESCO Declares Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensemble of Mumbai a World Heritage Property

Manama, Bahrain, June 30, 2018 — India’s nomination of the “Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai” has been inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

The decision was taken at the 42nd session of the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO at Manama in Bahrain today. As recommended by the World Heritage Committee, India accepted the renaming of the ensemble as “Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai”.

India has secured the inscription of the “Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai” on UNESCO’s World Heritage List under Criteria (ii) and (iv) as defined in the UNESCO’s Operational Guidelines.

In the past five years, India has managed to get inscribed seven of its properties/sites on the World Heritage List of UNESCO. India now has overall 37 World Heritage Inscriptions with 29 Cultural, 07 Natural and 01 Mixed sites. While India stands second in number after China regarding the number of World Heritage properties in ASPAC (Asia and Pacific) region, it is overall sixth in the world.

The Ensemble comprises of two architectural styles, the 19th-century collection of Victorian structures and the 20th century Art Deco buildings along the sea, conjoined through the historic open space of the Oval Maidan. Together, this architectural ensemble represents the most remarkable collection of Victorian and Art Deco buildings in the world which forms the unique character of this urban setting, unparalleled in the world.

The Ensemble consists of 94 buildings primarily of 19th-century Victorian Gothic revival and early 20th century Art Deco style of architecture with the Oval Maidan in the center. The 19th-century Victorian buildings form part of the larger Fort precinct situated to the east of the Oval Maidan. These public buildings include the Old Secretariat (1857-74), University Library and Convention Hall (1874-78), the Bombay High Court (1878), the Public Works Department Office (1872), Watson&#8217’s Hotel (1869), David Sasoon Library (1870), and the Elphinstone College (1888). The Art Deco styled buildings to the west of the Oval Maidan were raised in the early 20th century on the newly reclaimed lands at Marine Drive and symbolized the shift in expression to represent contemporary aspirations.

Paris: Amber Heard is the new global spokesperson for L’Oréal Paris. “Fearless, witty and smart, defying definition and rejecting convention, meet the Hollywood actress and committed woman making her voice heard,” the brand announced.

A Texas native who grew up training horses, Heard is the first to admit that she never really imagined herself in the world of beauty, though she did dream of beauty pageants as a young girl.

“I have always loved the fun of beauty and the power of transformation,” Amber Heard said. “To become a spokesperson for this dynamic, world-loved beauty brand that has been telling women they were of worth since before I was born, and to join the L’Oréal Paris family of changemakers is such an honor. I feel like these women, my fellow ambassadors, who represent a voice, a power, a movement, and an opinion.”

“Over the years I’ve always thought not just to be an actor, but to use my voice as a platform for making the world a slightly better place and for empowering women in the best way that I can,” Heard elaborated.

Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou, L’Oréal Paris Global President, remarked, “Amber Heard is one of a new generation of actresses rewriting the script when it comes to having a voice in the world. The energy Amber Heard brings to her philanthropy, to her advocacy, and to her performances, make her a powerful ambassador for L’Oréal Paris as we take ‘Because I’m Worth It’ beauty into 2018.”
