Fulbright Scholar Helps Generate $75,000 for UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network

A U.S. Fulbright scholar, Jacqueline Bishop, recently completed her four-month fellowship at UNESCO with a big win: working with the U.S. Mission to UNESCO, she submitted a project proposal that has been awarded $75,000 in funding from the State Department. During her fellowship Ms. Bishop was placed in the Creative Cities Network at UNESCO, where she discovered that there was a need to help less developed cities become part of the network.

UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network connects cities who want to share experiences, ideas and best practices for cultural, social and economic development. There are currently twenty-one cities in the network, including Iowa City, Iowa and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
