Digital transformation in the time of COVID-19 - sense-making workshops findings and outcomes

In June 2020, as part of our capacity building project, we launched a series of workshops that called upon our community to bring their perspective, experience and expertise together to identify new paths through - and beyond - the COVID-19 crisis for digital cultural heritage. Here you can explore the findings from these workshops.

This report, from Michael Peter Edson and Jasper Visser, presents findings and outcomes from a sense-making process that involved 64 participants from 22 countries over three weeks during the month of June 2020. The process was part of an ongoing effort by the Europeana Foundation to investigate digital transformation and capacity building across the European cultural heritage sector.

The report is designed to be read actively and comes with a reading guide to follow to help you work with colleagues to get the most out of it for your organisation. A complementary report from Culture24 is also available. This report aimed to develop a shared understanding of what is happening in our sector to support digital capacity and you can read this here

At Europeana Foundation we’ve been digesting these reports over the past few weeks, themes emerging from them are already being reflected back into Europeana 2020 and you can expect to hear more about the project in the lead-up to the conference.
