In June  2018 Melting Pro welcomed the Connect partners in Rome for the final review of the theoretical modules, teaching methods and a train the training on mentoring lead by Adrian De La Court and Sian Prime of Goldsmith University of London.

Taking the opportunity of the European colleagues’ presence in our city, Melting Pro in collaboration  with the Culture Department of the City of Rome, and the Istituzione Sistema Biblioteche Centri Culturali  organised an event “Connect Rome - Conversations on Audience Development, Cultural policies and Higher Education".

Local cultural professionals attended the event at the Library Institute of Rome, a long-standing and active cultural organisation next to the famous Villa Borghese. The event was organised by Melting Pro and the project partner CKI in collaboration with the municipality of Rome.

This report shares the outcomes of those conversations around four themes, which are central to the training delivered within the Connect project:

Capturing Data

Engagement

Cultural policies

Skills and training needs

The key questions that were discussed were:

·      How can cultural organisations become more relevant?

·      How can they be part of building a different future?

·      What skills do cultural professionals need to develop?

·      How can we understand our audiences?

The event was labelled as a European Year for Cultural Heritage event since it aimed also to reflect on how audience development could make cultural heritage more relevant to audiences, more connected to their needs, more inclusive and sustainable in the long term.

We are hopeful that readers will find the outcomes useful for their job in becoming more audience focused.

This toolkit aims to open up conversation within partnerships about what is important and what can be improved. It doesn’t try to define or limit an understanding of what good work is. Rather it aims to help those using the tools to openly discuss what they’re doing – asking themselves, and all those they work with, to think about whether they can do what they do in better ways. The goal is to encourage a culture of reflection and continuous improvement.
