The Santa Fe Creative Tourism Initiative is a program of the City of Santa Fe that works with artists and arts businesses in Santa Fe and the surrounding region to develop and promote workshops that allow visitors to experience the area’s unique culture in a hands-on fashion. The program was created as a result of the City of Santa Fe’s 2005 appointment to the UNESCO Creative Cities Network and builds upon the successful 2008 International Conference on Creative Tourism held in Santa Fe.
