On Thursday, July 18, 2019 DANS welcomes a group of about 30 students from the University of Washington, Seattle at DANS.
The students take part of a programme called “Dutch Designs: Innovation in Library, Museum and Information Services in the Netherlands.”
During their stay, they visit various institutions in the Netherlands, such as Sound and Vision, and multiple universities. The program states that “students on this program will examine how innovation works in libraries, museums, and information services throughout the Netherlands. We’ll look at what, exactly, “innovation” means in cultural heritage institutional settings; the interplay between culture and values in program design; the ways libraries and museums work with diversity; plus research, assessment, and the process of making a case for innovation.”
