The City of Bilbao will host for the first time the Forum d'Avignon, a prestigious forum to discuss about culture in Europe, an international meeting, where professionals of art, architecture, politics and entrepreneurship analyse different aspects of “The city as cultural ecosystem”. 

Bilbao is now a cultural ecosystem where every day we can find events and enriching dynamics for citizenship and visitors. Since the economic and urban transformation of the city happened, the city's name became associated with concepts such as excellence, economic activity, knowledge, art, technology, design or creativity. The Forum d' Avignon Bilbao will showcase how culture helps to drive the economic development and general welfare of the citizens, increases the innovation and creativity and becomes crucial to face attractiveness and global competition.
