Creative Food Cycles enhances innovative and creative practices between food, architecture, and conviviality in a transnational and European perspective. New devices and rituals in urban food production, distribution, consumption, and disposition are designed and implemented, for extended and training and audience development, fostering the exchange of ideas and creatives in Europe. The approach merges new ways of design and digital interaction in a transdisciplinary way, exploring cultural, social, and economic innovations accelerated through the activities.

With an open and inclusive approach and with targeted communication, a deeper interconnection among architects, designers, cultural operators, institutional stakeholders, and active urban society is stimulated, combining the concept of food resilience to the cultural sphere. For dissemination and roll-out, decisive multiplicators are addressed, also in other cities, and innovations in education are sustainably fostered.
