    Nominating the town of Viborg to be UNESCO City of Media Arts

    TAW has experience of years of collaborative work with UNESCO and a wide number of NGO’s in the field of developing professional creative skills and creativity in all levels of education worldwide. As a part of strengthening Denmark’s profile as a creative nation and Viborg as a town dedicated to media arts, the center worked in close collaboration with Viborg Municipality to apply for Viborg to become a UNESCO Creative City.
