Digital transformation in the time of COVID-19: Sense-making, scaling up, and capacity building workshops

As COVID-19 changes and challenges the cultural heritage sector, the importance of building capacity for digital transformation is clearer than ever. In June 2020, Europeana is offering a special series of online workshops to support strategic planning and capacity building for the sector, facilitated by noted digital cultural strategists Michael Peter Edson and Jasper Visser

The workshops will support participants to: 

  • Generate and share actionable insights and identify new paths through the COVID-19 crisis for digital culture.

  • Enhance our mutual capacity for longer-term planning beyond the immediate crisis.

  • Develop strategic thinking around digital transformation that will support work at an institutional level.

  • Contribute to a broader discussion about digital transformation in the cultural heritage sector in a (post-)COVID-19 world.

  • Gain new perspectives from working with your peers and experts in digital cultural heritage.

These workshops form part of an ongoing process from the Europeana Initiative which aims to understand the needs of the cultural heritage sector with regards to capacity building in the context of digital transformation. The insights they provide will help us develop frameworks to address these needs, and we will be sharing the process and outcomes widely to benefit all. There will be further opportunities to contribute and collaborate as we continue on this journey, so please continue to check Europeana Pro news to hear more!
