PM Modi congratulates J&K people for UNESCO tag for Srinagar
 
New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated the people of Jammu and Kashmir for Srinagar being added to UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network (UCCN) as a creative city for crafts and folk art.
In a tweet, the PM said: “Delighted that beautiful Srinagar joins the @UNESCO
Creative Cities Network (UCCN) with a special mention for its craft and folk art.
“It is a fitting recognition for the vibrant cultural ethos of Srinagar. Congratulations to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”

UNESCO in a tweet said: “Congratulations to the new 49 members of @UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network!
“From crafts and folk art to design to literature and much more!
“Discover the new cities placing culture & creativity at the heart of their sustainable urban development.”
India’s Permanent mission at UNESCO said: “Congratulations Srinagar !
Srinagar has been added to UNESCO's creative Cities Network as a creative city for crafts and folk art.”
In a major recognition of the crafts and arts of Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar City has been chosen under the UNESCO creative city network under the Crafts and Folk Arts Category.
The inclusion of Srinagar in the creative city network for the arts and crafts has paved the way for the city to represent its handicrafts on the global stage through UNESCO, an official spokesman said on Monday.

The UNESCO creative city network involves seven creative fields: arts and folk art, media, film, literature, design, gastronomy and Media arts.
The dossier for nomination for Srinagar as Creative city was first filed by Srinagar in 2019 however only 2 cities Hyderabad for Gastronomy and Mumbai for Film were chosen during that year.
Prior to year 2019 only three Indian cities have been recognised as members of UCCN for creative cities namely - Jaipur (Crafts and Folk Arts) in 2015, Varanasi (Creative city of Music) in 2015 and Chennai (Creative city of Music) in 2017. For the year 2020 UNESCO did not call for applications for the creative city network.

Chief Executive Officer, Jhelum Tawi Flood Recovery Project, JKERA, Dr Abid Rashid Shah, said that the process of nomination of Srinagar under the UNESCO Creative City Network was undertaken and funded under the World Bank Jhelum Tawi Flood Recovery Project. This is the recognition of the historical Crafts and Arts of the City.
