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 three very different projects.
Building on the Rijksmuseum's own impact assessment looking at the economic and social impact of a renovation, we've taken a look at what we can learn and how it starts to articulate the value of their digital strategy.
Professor Jens Bley discusses SmartSquare, an initiative using digital culture in the revitalisation of an urban square in Hamburg, Germany, and 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.
We’ve been delighted to see how many institutions have been using and testing the first phase of the Impact Playbook 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.
