About GCDN

An initiative of AEA Consulting, the Global Cultural Districts Network (GCDN) is a membership network of global cultural & creative districts that fosters collaboration and knowledge-sharing about their creation, building, funding, management & operations.

This global forum offers a number of ways for people planning and creating cultural districts to learn from those currently running them. Members of the Network meet twice a year to discuss a range of issues: anchor institutions in districts; technology; development and training needs; effective methodologies for cultural planning; and so much more.

The next convening will take place in Dubai, spring 2018.
