The theme of 2016’s edition of Set Up is ‘orientation’. Bologna, as part of Creative SpIN project, aimed to promote relations between the artistic, cultural and creative sector and traditional sectors, invites UNESCO Creative Cities to present one or more artists, galleries or subjects that explore the theme of ‘creative spillovers’, or how art can orient and have an impact on research, development of new processes, products or services and on the economy or the life of the city. The UNESCO Creative Cities Network, in fact, promotes cooperation among cities, developing cross-cutting projects and establishing synergies between creative fields, at the local and international level.
