Reusing cultural heritage with a social and educational impact

By: Manuela Frudà 31 | 01 | 2017 Calls, crowdfunding, Europa, Goteo, impacto social, Licencias, matchfunding, Projects

Today, Europeana and Goteo are launching a joint match funding program to co-fund up to three creative educational projects. 

Both organisations have been working together since 2014, designing services including co-creation, agile collaborative development and crowdfunding for re-user communities and content holders.

In match funding, an institution makes a sum available to develop a specific area (culture, education, etc), then calls the community to submit projects in this area and appeals to the general public to pledge money. The crowd supports a specific project by making small fund donations that the institution matches with the same amount. See more at: http://pro.europeana.eu/blogpost/goteo-and-the-case-for-match-funding#sthash.ex1Y2i94.dpuf

Do you know about any fascinating educational project using cultural content?

Eligible projects must be digital, use Europeana openly licensed content as a central element and be relevant to a secondary education audiences (pupils 11-18 years and teachers in this educational tier). We accept applications for both formal and informal secondary education. The projects can vary from digital applications, MOOCs, e-books, to documentaries or other creative digital learning tools.

We are looking for proposals that are scalable and present ideas that will work across multiple countries and/or languages. It’s also important that applicants demonstrate how they will reach existing audiences and new communities in order to achieve their crowdfunding goals as well as how they will sustain the project in the long term.

Reach out to your communities and spread the word about this funding opportunity!
