DigiTraining, Digital & Audiovisual Capacity Building for Accessible Heritage, a project co-funded by the European Commission under the Creative Europe Programme, has launched an Open Call for European cultural heritage institutions.
The digital shift in the cultural heritage sector is important but can be quite challenging: successful applicants will receive training and support in the process to innovate and integrate new technologies in their organisations. For some this means personalised and
tailor-made support and digital production services directly adapted to their needs and mission to facilitate accessibility to culture.
The Programme is structured in 3 levels:
- the General Programme will provide 60 organisations with a combined training on digital and audiovisual technology, as well as on digital-related management;
- the Specific Programme will provide up to 6 organisations with mentoring through a specific training programme resulting in a strongly increased capacity in digital skills as well as in strategy and management tools to deal with them;
- the Qualified Programme will provide a maximum of 3 selected organisations with the cost-free production of a virtual or augmented reality audiovisual project specifically adapted to their mission and narrative, together with the strategic and managerial
advice to best integrate it in their activities.
The call, which is open for applications, is for small or midsize museums, as well as other tangible or intangible heritage organisations with open facilities accessible to the public, based in one of the Creative Europe Programme countries.
The deadline for applications is May 31st, 2021, at 23:00 (CET). The DigiTraining activities will take place, depending on each specific Programme, between June 2021 and May 2022.
