ITI/UNESCO World Performing Arts Capital
World Performing Arts Capital is a title bestowed by both UNESCO and ITI to a city in recognition of the quality of its programmes to support and promote the performing arts and education in this sector. Performing Arts embrace Drama Theatre, Dance and Music Theatre. The designation runs for one year.
The creation of the World Performing Arts Capital was approved by UNESCO during its General Assembly in 2013. The management for the call, the selection and the control and the evaluation has been delegated to ITI which will collaborate closely with UNESCO, to make sure that UNESCO and ITI aims are being followed.
Goals of the World Performing Arts Capital

The Capital focuses on the importance and value of the performing arts for the individual and society and for innovation and social change. The Capital actively encourages the development of the performing arts and education in the performing arts in the host city, region and country with a sustainable impact.
