Staff training in audience development
Banco di Napoli Foundation

Notte dei Ricercatori”, staged in September 2019, in collaboration with Centro Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR)

Banco di Napoli Foundation involved the CREARCH staff in an entrainment and training activity about archives named “Notte dei Ricercatori” addressed at researchers and archival professionals. 

This first testing in giving a didactical and multidisciplinary approach to a visit dedicated to archival professionals and researchers has given good suggestions for the effective development of training in audience development course as it’s described by the Project.

Training Course of CREARCH project,
staged in July 2020 in a blended mode (via Google Meet and in presence)

The training course consisted of four lessons with 55 students. Four teachers dealt with the themes of storytelling, public history and the management of cultural and archival heritage.

As part of the CREARCH project, the Fondazione Banco di Napoli has organized an online training course dedicated to a new "supply chain" for the world of archives.  The topic has been: new approaches and storytelling models to give new life and value to the professionals who, thanks to the archives, enhance and preserve the common European memory. A path in five encounters, between archival matters, economics and multimedia. Limited number course, has been required registration, participation has been free. A certificate of attendance has been issued.

A handbook was produced as support material for the training course

Thanks to the collection of case studies, theoretical apparatus and food for thought, the handbook presents the framework in which the training course is inserted.

The handbook is the framework on which the training course is built. The theoretical framework on which the four teachers relied for their interventions aimed at the objectives of innovation and multidisciplinarity. The handbook is divided into six parts: Introduction, methodology, archival, public history, storytelling and business economics.
The themes of digitization and accessibility of archives are accompanied by some case studies, such as those concerning the community of miners in Limburg and the Told Archive in Naples.
