The Architecture Project
More Creative is Aarhus 2017 and Central Denmark Region’s strategy to stimulate growth and create jobs by supporting the region’s creative industries. The core purposes of More Creative are to develop creative partnerships into self-supporting clusters and to form new regional partnerships across the creative industries and the wider economy and thus stimulate the creative economy. This leads to new business models and a region with a stronger competitive edge. We believe, the industries of tomorrow are creative!

What will be on the menu in the future? What kinds of foods might be available if the earth dries up, or the world is flooded? Perhaps if we look after the world a little better we might have a bountiful harvest of new foods in some forthcoming utopian era, but right now we are in the ‘anthropocene’ so we had better prepare ourselves for future food shock.
