The Europeana Impact Playbook is helping cultural heritage institutions around the world discover and analyse the impact of their activities. We’ve been working with some of them to help develop our work on impact further, and we’ve been talking to others about their experiences with the first phase of the Impact Playbook. Here, we hear from 3 very different projects.
A perspective; The renovation of the Rijksmuseum provided an inspiring example throughout the cultural heritage sector, in many areas of operation: from gallery development, visitor engagement and online access policy. Thanks to their own impact assessment looking at the economic and social impact of the renovation, we've taken a look at what we can learn from that, and how it starts to articulate the value of their digital strategy.
In our latest Impact case study, we hear from Professor Jens Bley, co-founder of eCultureLab and initiator of SmartSquare, an initiative using digital culture in the revitalisation of an urban square in Hamburg, Germany. Read on to find out more on some of the theoretical questions posed by running an impact assessment with multiple stakeholders.
Since we launched the first phase of the Impact Playbook, we’ve been delighted to see how many different institutions around the globe have been using it, testing it and holding their own impact workshops. We hear from Maja Drabczyk, Chief International Projects Expert at the National Film Archive - Audiovisual Institute Poland on her work running impact workshops in Poland.
We discuss cultural heritage and impact with acclaimed professor of Cultural Economics and Deputy Rector for International Relations at IULM University, Milan, Pier Luigi Sacco - a self-proclaimed optimist who vividly illustrates the potential of free expression and unbridled content creation in the digital transformation of society.
