We found ourselves in the process of making the first ever Innovation Handbook for heritage.
We hope that this can be the start of a real innovation scene here in our often to small heritage island.
This innovation handbook is designed to acquaint you with what heritage and innovation actually have in common.
- In Chapter 1 you will find our working definition for heritage led innovation and a short ride down theory lane, topped of with a review of what is already happening in the EU on the heritage and innovation front.
- Chapter 2 mainly points out specificities of heritage led innovations, illustrated with short case studies.
- In chapter 3 we use a variety of scientific knowledge, real life cases studies (even the shift from horse drawn carriages to automobiles!), and a game walkthrough to explain what innovation is all about.
- In chapter 4 you can find one of the big components of this handbook an innovation roadmap for whomever has a new idea related to a heritage building, site or even local tradition. Because when you embark on a heritage led innovation journey, it is just useful and re assuring to see what practitioners say and think.
For whom is this handbook intended? This handbook is created to be open. We do not like boxes or usual suspects. You are welcome to check this handbook out if you are interested in innovation, in any type of heritage, or in any opportunity of change for that matter Whether you are an innovation die hard, just want to strike up a conversation, or are looking for the 101 we are sure you can find new facts, food for thought as well as inspiration in here.
Basically, we hope to create a taste for venturing outside of comfort zones, and of course a good portion of new initiatives
that put heritage in the innovation spotlight
