This year, four Brazilian cities are attempting to join Unesco’s (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) Creative Cities Network. The certification acknowledges practices that bring creative and cultural industries at the service of local social development.

Three state capitals—Belo Horizonte, Fortaleza, and Aracaju—are running in the categories gastronomy, design, and music, respectively, and the city of Cataguases, in Minas Gerais, in film.
