2018 World Cities Culture Summit taking place in San Francisco: November 14-16


The World Cities Culture Forum has been a hotbed of collaboration over the past six years. This has included London’s Creative Land Trust, which was inspired by San Francisco’s Community Arts Stabilization Trust, Toronto’s discussion with Sydney about waterfront development as the city transforms the area around Lake Ontario, and Edinburgh’s work with Montreal to create its own strategy to map creative workspaces.

On Thursday, November 15, CAST will be part of a panel discussion on “Making Space For Culture,” presenting its pioneering model to an international delegation, along with London’s Creative Land Trust, and Stockholm’s Fokus Skärholmen.

The summit is organized by the World Cities Culture Forum, which is made up of 35 world cities, who all recognize the impact and importance of culture and creativity and are committed to them being at the heart of public policy and city planning.

Justine Simons OBE, Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries and Chair of the World Cities Culture Forum said:

“Culture is a golden thread that runs through our cities, defining their character and acting as the catalyst for ideas and innovation. But as cities grow there are serious challenges, and the World Cities Culture Forum is working on practical solutions to ensure talent and creativity can flourish.”
