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.
From March to June 2020, Europeana Communicators held a series of webinars on the theme ‘Culture from home’, in which specialists from museums, libraries, archives and educational settings shared their solutions for reaching audiences while their doors were closed. Here, co-chair and webinar moderator Susan Hazan reflects on the series.
Europeana’s June workshops on ‘Digital transformation in the time of COVID-19’ are complete, and the topics and questions they highlighted have ongoing relevance for the cultural heritage sector. In this post, Michael Peter Edson explores the ‘edge predictions’ that workshop participants imagined as the possible futures for digital cultural heritage.
