Cultural heritage institutions are embracing digital at all levels of their operations. This is often accompanied by a shift in understanding their role in building relations with their communities. The aim of inDICEs policy recommendations is to support them in fulfilling their public mission in the digital realm: to further the democratic and community-focused digital transformation of CHIs, and to support access to, and the reusability of, digital cultural heritage, to better prepare CHIs for the digital transformation. After the short presentation of selected recommendations, an interactive, collaborative exercise on the inDICEs participatory space will focus on how these recommendations can be useful for your organisation.
- Pirjo Hamari and Eeva Teräsvirta, Finnish Heritage Agency
- In cooperation with the Creative Europe project MOI! Museums of Impact
- Venue: Loulé Criativo
Join this workshop to get acquainted with the new MOI impact framework! This framework can be used as an internal tool in a museum to evaluate its potential for impact in the surrounding society and with its communities. The framework is based on eight independent modules, each containing evaluation questions to be assessed in dialogue within the organisation. The dialogue outcomes reached in the process can be turned into a development plan for strengthening the impact of the whole museum. Come and join this workshop for an introduction to the methodology and for a test run of the framework.
- Margherita Sani, University of Bologna and NEMO
Elis Marçal, freelancing conservator-restorer
- In cooperation with the Erasmus+ project CHARTER - the European Cultural Heritage Skills Alliance
- Venue: Sul Sol e Sal
How do you see your work in the near future? What are the main challenges and which skills would you need to acquire in order to address them?
The workshop will be an opportunity for self-reflection and give you a chance to discuss future scenarios in museum work with colleagues from different countries.
- Susanne Zils, Bavarian Office for Non-State Museums
- Venue: Assembleia Municipal de Loulé
Museums work like complex systems and ideas and tools are needed for tackling with the ever growing complexity in times of disruptions. What if the system only concentrated itself on the capacity to survive? Natural systems do this very efficiently. Based on the analysis of cells, brains and ecosystems, Frederic Vester (1925-2003), a former member of the Club of Rome, described “Eight Biocybernetic Rules” as an orientation model for planning and management of resilient systems.
The workshop invites to allow a holistic view of the museum as a system, capture dynamic relationships and foster interconnected thinking. Participants will visualize how disruptions will influence museum functions, roles and products and discuss how the biocybernetic system approach can offer guidance in decision-making processes.
- Maaike Verberk, DEN - Dutch Knowledge institute culture and digital transformation
Nicole McNeilly, Europeana Foundation
- Venue: Municipal Museum Loulé
Due to the increasing digitalization of society, museums are challenged to fundamentally change their business models by putting audience interaction and audience experiences at their core. Impact awareness enables digital leaders to ideate digital or otherwise innovative activities that contribute to the change they want to see occurring in their audiences and in society as a whole. In this practical workshop we define with the participants what digital transformation means for their organisations and - by using the Change Pathway Canvas as a tool from the Europeana Impact Playbook - how impact awareness can help museums build a value-driven digital strategy.
