NEMO has studied the different calls for proposals and find that two are of relevant to museums. The first call is on the topic of “Collaborative approaches to cultural heritage for social cohesion”. Apply by clicking here and find more information below.
“While a key mission of the cultural heritage sector is to provide inclusive access, some socio-cultural groups are still not sufficiently integrated in cultural heritage experiences. The challenge is to improve the design of cultural experiences by enhancing participatory and collaborative approaches and by fostering mutual cultural understanding and resilient strategies.”
The second call for proposals that NEMO find to be of interest for museums, is on the topic of “The societal value of culture and the impact of cultural policies in Europe”Apply by clicking here and find more information below.
“Culture has been an important element of public policy for social, cultural and political cohesion and inclusion throughout European history, and its potential could be significantly enhanced. Although it is often seen today from the angle of economic value added, culture generates additional societal value in terms of well-being and by promoting identity and belonging, inclusiveness, tolerance and cohesion. Culture is also a source of creativity and innovation. The challenge is to develop new perspectives and improved methodologies for capturing the wider societal value of culture, including but also beyond its economic impact.“
