Permanent membership

Membership of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network is permanent. However, Leeuwarden must however continue to meet the requirements during the audit. This audit is conducted every 4 years. Membership offers opportunities to exchange writers, poets and translators with other cities, for example. But also sharing knowledge and experience on literature and multilingualism. The emphasis here is on Frisian. This makes Leeuwarden especially attractive to cultural tourists.
