Co-creation within CH institutions is not a new phenomenon, but the current practice often is project based, run only by the educational staff, met by scepsis from curators and conservators, thus leaving a lot of potential results untouched. This policy brief, based on preliminary research findings, gives a short overview of the potential benefits of co-creative methods in the CH sector, of the current practices and a number of suggestions to further stimulate co-creation in cultural heritage on a strategic level.
In a dynamic European context, cultural heritage institutions are redefining their roles and indeed themselves. The challenges that institutions face today – technological innovation, sustainability, citizenship, lifelong learning and cultural diversity – are complex and almost always impact upon more than one domain. Traditional means of innovation do not always work anymore and instead new approaches emerge that involve end-users and professionals at all levels, to enable a collective imagining, building and experiencing of new futures.
