CYANOTYPES is a community of change, a pan-European project which addresses the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) sector's needs and skills gaps.


Challenging existing frameworks, we ask what innovative, multidisciplinary structures, strategic interventions and concrete skills development solutions can be adopted across the European CCI ecosystem? HKU University of Arts Utrecht coordinates the project which is co-funded by the European Uanion.

The project gathers stakeholders from all corners of the CCI sector and beyond as it calls for radical change. A shift that recognises the sector's potential for innovation, competitiveness and resilience, that reacts to and rebounds from current global challenges such as pandemics, digital transition, conflict, and the climate crisis.

Speaking on behalf of project coordinator HKU University of Arts Utrecht, David Crombie says, “CYANOTYPES adopts anticipatory strategies to develop and test a methodological framework that will empower creators to imagine multiple futures, making processes they are involved in today more sustainable, more resilient, and more dynamic. Organised by a triple loop learning framework, this will include changes in how we "learn how to learn".”
