Key theoretical frameworks
A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.
About this process
This process belongs to RECHARGE Playbook
This process showcases successful business models and identifies key elements of financing, networking, and participation motivation. Participants will develop innovative forms of participation for CH Living Labs.
This process focuses on the research surrounding participatory management and business models in the cultural heritage sector within Recharge. The activities conducted include identifying sustainable financing and participatory management models, understanding motivations for participation, quantitatively analyzing the value of participation, and studying how cultural heritage institutions can form impactful and durable partnerships and collaborations. This space will highlight the themes and outputs resulting from desk research, qualitative and quantitative data collection, online focus groups, and case studies. The goal is to propose innovative forms of participation that can be tested by the CH Living Labs.
