The historical city of Isfahan in central Iran is the country’s first city to join the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) by virtue of its crafts and arts.

The UNESCO Creative Cities Network was created in 2004 to promote cooperation with and among cities that have identified creativity as a strategic factor for sustainable urban development.

The 116 cities which currently make up this network work together towards a common objective: placing creativity and cultural industries at the heart of their development plans at the local level and cooperating actively at the international level.

The Iranian city of Isfahan has been recently selected as an official member of the network thanks to its precious crafts and arts.

Here are IRNA’s photos of Isfahan and its handicrafts:
