The Europeana Impact Playbook is helping cultural heritage institutions around the world discover and analyse the impact of their activities. We’ve been working with some of them to help develop our work on impact further, and we’ve been talking to others about their experiences with the first phase of the Impact Playbook. Here, we hear from 3 very different projects.
A perspective; The renovation of the Rijksmuseum provided an inspiring example throughout the cultural heritage sector, in many areas of operation: from gallery development, visitor engagement and online access policy. Thanks to their own impact assessment looking at the economic and social impact of the renovation, we've taken a look at what we can learn from that, and how it starts to articulate the value of their digital strategy.
In our latest Impact case study, we hear from Professor Jens Bley, co-founder of eCultureLab and initiator of SmartSquare, an initiative using digital culture in the revitalisation of an urban square in Hamburg, Germany. Read on to find out more on some of the theoretical questions posed by running an impact assessment with multiple stakeholders.
Everybody wants to understand the impact of their work better, but for many the process can seem daunting. In this case study, we hear from Leiden University Libraries’ Marco de Niet on their novel approach to an impact workshop.
Since we launched the first phase of the Impact Playbook, we’ve been delighted to see how many different institutions around the globe have been using it, testing it and holding their own impact workshops. We hear from Maja Drabczyk, Chief International Projects Expert at the National Film Archive - Audiovisual Institute Poland on her work running impact workshops in Poland.
Last week, Harry Verwayen, Executive Director of the Europeana Foundation, appeared at THE ARTS+ festival in Frankfurt to take part in visionary discussions about a new ecosystem for the future of culture as part of an #InnovationSummit.
