Swedish Digital Identity Development Programme, 2016

Embrace the Next Big Shift in Storytelling, Engagement and Social Impact

The Digital Identity programme is a 1 year collaborative development project. Participating organisations will learn how to exploit the power of social and digital media to develop an engagement strategy that creates real impact and enables you to connect with new audiences. The programme has 4 phases. Each phase begins with a workshop and participants receive regular one-to-one support to turn your ideas into action. During the course of the programme, you will also develop a project idea with a strong digital aspect that is backed by a clear business case.

The programme includes support and guidance from a range of international experts. Your lead facilitators will be Abhay Adhikari (PhD) and Kajsa Hartig. Abhay is based in the UK and works globally to help organisations develop innovation and engagement programmes. He is currently working on a breakthrough Smart City project with local government in the UK. Kajsa is the Digital Navigator at the New media department in Nordiska museet and chair of IDEK.

The story so far

The participants of the 2015 programme are Historiska museet, Tekniska museet, Naturhistoriska riksmuseet and Stockholm Stadsmuseum. Now in phase 3 of the one year programme, each organisation has developed an innovative social media engagement programme with a focus on real participation – from urban gardening to hyperlocal storytelling. Other facilitators and guest speakers on this programme include experts from leading organisations in the UK, The Netherlands and Germany.

Who can participate?

This programme is aimed at cultural, government and private sector organisations that wish to develop a sincere digital engagement strategy.
