This issue was produced on occasion of the 2013 City-to-City Cultural Exchange, a forum consisting of four Asian cities - Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Taipei - exploring the role of contemporary culture in the contemporary urban setting.

The theme for the 2013 conferences covers creative cities and museums, viewing culture as a pivot to urban living improvement. Panel discussions surround topics of government and public policy, museums, social networks and non-government organisations.

In 1997, the first City-to-City Cultural Exchange Conference gathered participants from the cultural sectors of the four aforementioned cities, where each city takes turns hosting the conference each year. The hosting city sets the conference theme and invites participants to come up with new interpretations on the concept of culture and its role in civic society.

Includes essays.
