Lockdown came upon us all fast. Within just a few weeks, almost all museums, libraries, archives and galleries closed. Now, things are beginning to reopen, but opening the doors is much more complicated than closing them. Here, as part of our #DiscoveringEurope series, we look at some useful, imaginative and inspiring examples from cultural institutions around Europe.
In our ‘Professionals in Focus’ series, we speak to our Councillors about their roles, working lives and plans for their time on the Members Council. This month, Hans van der Linden discusses taking a holistic approach to digital transformation, and his work as a Policy Advisor at the Flemish Government Department of Culture, Youth and Media.
When large parts of Europe went into lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Europeana events team and the Europeana Network Association’s specialist communities had to start to work very differently. This document is a work-in-progress. It is being designed so that we have a set of useful and usable guidelines for digital events organised by Europeana or organised in cooperation with Europeana.
