Copy this Book is an artist’s guide to copyright, written for makers. Both practical and critical, the workshops created will guide you through the concepts underlying copyright and how they apply in your practice. How do you get copyright? For what work? And for how long? How does copyright move across mediums, and how can you go about integrating the work of others? Because they get copyright too!

This dimension encourages a holistic view of agency that incorporates diverse forms of interaction and impact on creative processes.

    2. Public Agency Cluster

    Public Agency emphasises the role of public actors and spaces in fostering regional transformation and innovation. It highlights the significance of public life and sector innovation, stressing the importance of anticipatory practices in public sector innovation for addressing rapid societal changes and crises.

    3. Value Creating Cluster

    Value-Creating Agency addresses the dynamics of value creation within the arts and creative sector, challenging traditional notions of value and exploring new models for organising value creation, such as the doughnut economy concept.

    4. Data Driven Cluster

    Data-Driven Agency underscores the importance of data competencies and the design of data spaces for communication, organisation, and value creation. This dimension champions the framing of data and technology to empower creative individuals and organizations to envision and implement socio-technological systems effectively.

    Regenerative Agency Cluster advocates for a shift from sustainability to regenerativity, emphasising the need for actions that repair damage and foster renewal.

About

Creative Skills Week 2024 gathers third-level educators, university leaders, vocational education and training (VET) providers, industry partners, SME’s and policymakers dedicated to the future of the Cultural and Creative Sector Industries (CCSI).

 

Working in the cultural and creative ecosystem, we often lack the time to come together and think about the future of our sector, particularly how we can strengthen the organisations and businesses within it.   

Join us for Creative Skills Week 2024, a unique opportunity to shape and steer the discussion around skills for our somewhat fragmented sector. To achieve this, we need all stakeholders to be involved and help us address skills gaps, identify opportunities for upskilling, and start shaping strategic skills for future creatives.  

Explore common ground for the cultural and creative ecosystem throughout Europe. Develop local and European solutions which address urgent challenges within the CCSI. Together, let’s learn from each other how local communities can strengthen their work and enhance collaboration within their local ecosystems. Contribute to expanding creative skills training beyond systems and sectors to secure sustainable futures in the CCSI!   

Powered by SACCORD, in association with CYANOTYPES, and hosted by Conservatorium of Amsterdam and the Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK).

Travel to Amsterdam

Amsterdam is very easy to reach by plane, train, bus, car or even boat. We encourage everyone to use the rail if possible, so we can keep our carbon footprint to a minimum.

Amsterdam is easily and directly accessible by train from all over Europe. Eurostar (formerly Thalys), ICE International and European Sleeper trains run directly to the heart of the city from London, Paris, Brussels, Cologne, Antwerp, Prague and Dresden.   

You will likely terminate at Amsterdam’s main station: Amsterdam Centraal Station. From there, it is simple to complete your journey by public transport.

If you are travelling from another station in the Netherlands (for example Utrecht or Rotterdam), it is possible that you choose another train station in Amsterdam closer to your destination.

 

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the primary international airport in the Netherlands, is located about 20 kilometres from Amsterdam. You can reach Amsterdam from Schiphol by train, taxi or hotel shuttle in just half an hour.

From Schiphol, InterCitys and slower trains from the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Dutch Railways – NS) can take you to Amsterdam Central Station (city centre), Amsterdam Zuid (World Trade Center) and Amsterdam RAI (conference centre).

Amsterdam is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world. The fastest and easiest way to get around in the city is by cycling.

Bicycles can be rented in all parts of the city. Especially around Central Station and Leidseplein you may find rental companies. Some hotels provide rental bikes as well. Bike rental is often possible from 3 hours per day, the average daily rental price is €10.For more information on bicycle parking and tips, please check this website: https://www.iamsterdam.com/en/travel-stay/getting-around/cycling-in-amsterdam

Public transport in Amsterdam is easy to use and very well connected. The extensive network is operated by GVB and connects the city’s neighbourhoods and the greater Amsterdam Area by tram, metro, bus and ferry. Ferries are free to use in Amsterdam. When downloading the GVB travel app, you can easily buy tickets within the app. Paper chip cards are available in many places (debit or credit card, PIN/contactless):

Environmental sustainability

The CSW Organisers are aware that large international conferences can have a negative effect on the environment due to the number of participants, who will be travelling and the footprint of hosting the event itself (for instance, through consumption and waste). To reduce the environmental impact of Creative Skills Week 2024, the organising team, will make greener choices in the organisation of the conference and invite participants to join us in this effort! 

 

Several steps are being taken by CSW organisers, to lower the event’s impact on the environment and climate: 

 
  • ACCOMMODATION: All recommended hotels are easily accessible from the conference venue, either on foot or by a short ride with public transportation. The recommended hotels are taking ecological steps to improve their offer and make it more environmentally friendly.
 
  • TRAVEL: Participants are encouraged to travel by train to Amsterdam, if possible, or make other sustainable travel arrangements. If you must fly, consider a direct connection (if available), which has a lower carbon emission than a flight with a transfer. Walking, cycling, or public transportation should be used for travel within Amsterdam.
  • FOOD & DRINKS: Catering at the event has been selected following sustainability criteria and will feature local, seasonal, and/or vegetarian options. Participants are encouraged to bring their own re- usable water bottle.
 
  • MATERIALS: Printed materials and giveaways will be kept to a minimum. Please let us know in the registration process whether you need a printed programme (large print is available). Participants are encouraged to bring their own (tote) bag in which they can keep conference materials. Tote bags will not be handed out at the venue.
 
  • AWARENESS: To increase awareness about environmental sustainability, our sustainable actions will be communicated to our suppliers and partners. Before, during, and after the conference we will communicate and create dialogue with participants to help us co-create a more sustainable event.
 

We are aligning the CSW’s sustainability efforts to the SHIFT Eco-Guidelines for Networks.
