Good practices and methods for co-creation

“Many cultural heritage (CH) institutions state the ambition to invoke a sense of belonging and citizenship within their community, and to foster a relationship with future generations through their collections. However, not many have the experience or the tools to do so in an open, creative and responsive way. By providing a diverse set of good practices for co-creation with stakeholders in this report, the RICHES project wants to distil methods and approaches for co-creation and give an overview of the state-of-the-art co-creation activities that are currently done within the cultural heritage domain in Europe. The research reflects on the processes of reversing the role between cultural institutions and society, where the audience is central and consumers become producers. This report hopes to contribute to identifying what it means for a museum to represent society, fostering recognition of identity, history and contemporary life.”
