Capacity building

A calendar of WEAVE events programmed for Winter-Spring 2022 has focus on capacity building. The effort is devoted to both cultural heritage institutions, via a series of Europeana WEAVE events to support a more diverse and inclusive cultural heritage sector. Additionally, three capacity building workshops with the cultural communities directly linked with the project and CHIs, led by C-DARE Coventry University will explore ways of improving communities’ engagement with tangible and intangible heritage.

Europeana WEAVE events

This is a series of four events for cultural heritage professionals on the topics of diversity and inclusion, to get a better understanding and inspire each other on how cultural institutions can support a more diverse and inclusive sector. The four events will be carefully planned and moderated by WEAVE partners with the support of Europeana Foundation. The events are supported by a workbook that attendees can use for the entire series. The events series is an iterative process and, ideally, participants join all the events.
