Co-creation in arts, culture and heritage

Aim and objectives


The aim is to compile good practice and innovative approaches and develop curricula and in-service training packages for culture actors engaged in co-creative cooperation between voluntary culture associations, public culture institutions, and the culture departments of the municipalities.

The objectives

for the development work will:

  • be based on an understanding of co-creation with reference to New Public Governance and its understanding of co-creation as a mean of empowerment of citizens and civil society associations;
  • have focus on the synergistic benefit and the so-called 'transformative potential' for active citizenship, democratic participation and community bonding;
  • promote a co-creative cooperation based on equal terms, where citizens and other civil society actors are engaged not only as co-implementers, but also as co-initiators and co-designers of new welfare services;
  • present forms of co-creation, where the cultural associations not only are equal partners, but also in part of the project have the role as initiators and governing actors to release the transformative potentials; their control and give room and influence for initiatives, resources and contributions from civil society associations and citizens.
