The European Commission recently recognised the cultural and creative industries (CCI) as one of Europe's leading industrial sectors. Well, we already knew that! This presents an opportunity to come together, think about the future of our sector, and address skills needs and reskilling across the whole creative ecosystem.

The second edition of CREATIVE SKILLS WEEK will be powered by the SACCORD project, in association with the Blueprint Project, CYANOTYPES. PACESETTERS will actively participate in shaping and steering discussions around skills, addressing gaps, opportunities for upskilling, and to start shaping strategic skills for future creatives.

This relates to PACESETTERS objective: Providing visibility and evidence of CCI capacities in the context of the climate transition by:

  • Tracing existing and emerging efforts across all sectors of the CCIs to adapt to the climate transition and collecting them in a shared and accessible repository.
  • Continuously analysing state of the art to identify skills gaps and lacking capacities regarding the climate transition across geographical (at least 30 European countries) and sectorial divides (all 13 sectors to be covered). 
  • Identifying the pain and gain points of the PACESETTERS target groups

Join our active community who believe in the power of creativity, skilling and learning from 16 – 20 September 2024 (in person and online). The LIVE programme will take place in Amsterdam on 18 & 19 September, kindly hosted by the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, Amsterdam University of Arts.
