Managing Creative Cities 2: Maximizing the Potential of Albanian Cities (Swiss Cultural Program; February 2008-January 2011)
During 2008-2011, ANTTARC has managed the “Creative Cities 2” project. The project has been funded by the Swiss Cultural Program.
“Creative Cities 2” has promoted the philosophy of creative cities in six cities in Albania (Korce, Peshkopi, Puke, Gjirokaster, Lezhe, Sarande) and in the neighboring countries (Struga in Macedonia and Ulcin in Montenegro). The “Creative Cities” focused on cities’ social and economic development through innovative and inspiring use of their cultural values and traditions. The project enhanced participation of all community actors by strengthening the human capacity relating to the development and management of projects that contribute to the social and economic development of the city, fundraising, and establishment of networks between “creative cities.” Also, “creative cities” received grants to implement innovative projects.
