Virtual Co-Host

The World Cities Culture Forum (WCCF), which BOP convenes, provides a way for policy makers in 38 key cities to share research and intelligence, and explore the vital role of culture in their future prosperity.  Forum partners collaborate via a programme of events including themed symposia, regional summits and workshops. These events feed into the annual World Cities Culture Summit. Hosted on a rotating basis by partner cities, this unique gathering allows city leaders to share ideas and knowledge about the role of culture as an organising principle for the sustainable city of the future.
