The digital transformation agenda and GLAMs - Culture24 findings and outcomes

In summer 2020, as part of our capacity building project, we commissioned independent charity Culture24 to produce a report to help develop a shared understanding of what is happening in our sector to support digital capacity, to consider what terms like ‘digital transformation’ mean in practice for GLAM institutions and to provide a snapshot of digital capacity building initiatives in the sector.

This report was commissioned in conjunction with our community led peer-to-peer sensemaking workshops, a 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.

Culture24 worked closely with the Europeana Foundation and Michael Peter Edson and Jasper Visser during this period, and this report is intended to complement the workshops’ findings and outcomes. You can read the report on the workshops 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.
