The UNESCO Creative Cities Network of Spain held a meeting this October at the headquarters of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), linked to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Madrid, with representatives from five of the seven Spanish member cities taking part. The event was attended by Burgos and Dénia as creative cities of Gastronomy, Granada (Literature), Bilbao (Design) and Terrassa (Film) in order to share experiences and forge new opportunities. The other two cities are Barcelona (Literature) and Seville (Music).

The key objective was to exchange opinions and map out a joint vision for the future, as well as to make the network more visible through the Ministry. Several common points among the cities were also put forward, with their various sensitivities and realities, while the need for an agreement to carry out a biannual follow-up was proposed.
