As COVID-19 changes and challenges the cultural heritage sector, the importance of building capacity for digital transformation is clearer than ever. We have developed a phased project to help us identify and shape a capacity-building framework based on the needs of our sector.
Through our special workshop series around ‘Digital Transformation in the time of COVID-19’, we have worked to bring the perspective, experience and expertise of thought leaders across the sector together to identify new paths through - and beyond - the COVID-19 crisis for digital cultural heritage. The outcomes of the workshops and an accompanying report from Culture24 are shaping the next phase of this project as we seek to involve more voices from across the sector and continent. The outcomes have helped shape the themes of Europeana 2020.
