CreArt (Network of Cities for Artistic Creation) is an European Network comprised of cities and public and private cultural institutions, selected to receive funds by the European Commission (Culture Programme 2012-2017, Creative Europe 2017-2021). The aim of CreArt is 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.

To develop more training opportunities for cultural agents: Artist in residence programs, workshops, seminars, conferences, encounters.

Introduction of work methodologies for specific groups (children, youth and adults) that will promote creativity as a skill for personal development through educational programmes.

To enhance audience development through the institutionalization in different cities of the European Day of Artistic Creativity and the European travelling Exhibitions.

To identify and research, within the framework of conferences, seminars and encounters, the best practices in culture-led development

To help develop a social status for artists, based on the Proposal Resolution of the European Parliament (2006/2249)
