Districts of Creativity
A Worldwide Initiative
Founded in 2004, the Districts of Creativity (DC) Network unites 12 of the most creative and innovative regions around the world, with Oklahoma as the only representative district in North America. Our international orientation makes us a unique network of regions that put creativity and innovation high on our agendas. We believe that cross-border collaborations contribute to advance a creative and entrepreneurial culture. Therefore the DC Network was formed to foster the exchange of best practices and experiences in business, culture and education.
From the USA to China and Scotland to India, the Districts of Creativity Network spans the globe and continues to grow. Current members include: Baden-Württemberg (Germany), Catalonia (Spain), Central Denmark (Denmark), Flanders (Belgium), Karnataka (India), Lombardia (Italy), Oklahoma (USA), Nord-Pas de Calais (France), Qingdao (P.R. China), Rhône-Alpes (France), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Scotland (United Kingdom), Shanghai (P.R. China) and Tampere (Finland).
