Co-creation brainstorm toolkit

Waag has developed a co-creation brainstorm toolkit for cultural heritage professionals to assist them in defining their co-creation process. It has its place very early on in a co-creation project. Practically the toolkit guides you and your team through a structured brainstorm process. The brainstorm is set up in such a way that it will help you to critically look at your own ability as an organization to engage in co-creation, explore the skills you need, identify potential stakeholders for your co-creation trajectory and clearly define the impact you want to have.

The co-creation brainstorm toolkit consists of: game master instructions, that will guide you through the session; a printable mat, which consists of three (colored) circles of attention, helping you to physically ‘lay out’ your conversation on the table; collaborative exercise cards, containing instructions for the brainstorm; canvasses, helping to visualize or storyboard your ideas; method cards, illustrating our favorite co-creation methods to choose from.

The toolkit was developed within the European RICHES project, that explored the link between cultural heritage institutions and our personal experience of identity and belonging.
