Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor

Check this tool to promote mutual exchange and learning between cities to boost culture-led development.

The Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor is a new tool to monitor and assess the performance of ‘Cultural and Creative Cities’ in Europe vis-à-vis their peers using both quantitative and qualitative data.

The quantitative information is captured in 29 indicators relevant to nine dimensions reflecting three major facets of the cultural, social and economic vitality of cities:

  • Cultural Vibrancy measures the cultural ‘pulse’ of a city in terms of cultural infrastructure and participation in culture;
  • Creative Economy captures how the cultural and creative sectors contribute to a city’s employment, job creation and innovative capacity;
  • Enabling Environment identifies the tangible and intangible assets that help cities attract creative talent and stimulate cultural engagement.
