View our UNESCO Annual Report to encounter a Creative City in action!
Since receiving UNESCO designation in November 2013, new doors have opened for exciting partnerships with Creative Cities around the globe. Initiatives of the American Quilter’s Society, National Quilt Museum and other fiber art partners have supported the growth of the quilting tradition into a globally-recognized artform while the Paducah School of Art & Design and Paducah’s innovative artists and far-reaching attractions and events invite visitors to participate in the community’s authentic sense of place.
If you live, work, teach or create in Paducah, you contribute to the global reputation of our Creative City and can tap into this network.
