As we continue to explore how we can build digital capacity in our sector, we’re delighted to share two complementary reports from our work on the project. Building on workshops with 64 changemakers, together these reports raise key questions and themes which further our understanding of what supporting digital capacity for the cultural heritage sector really means.
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.
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.
With the call for proposals for Europeana 2020 open, and some exciting suggestions already coming in, Susan Hazan and Marco Rendina take a look at the role of the Europeana 2020 Selection Committee, its criteria for evaluating proposals, and how we are working to make the conference a truly co-created event.
