To achieve this goal the Fondazione Banco di Napoli involved the CREARCH staff in an entrainment and training activity about archives named “Notte dei Ricercatori”, staged in collaboration with Centro Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) and 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.
Meantime the Historical Regional Center of Limburg has staged a training for archives staff to initiate storytelling projects for under-represented groups (non-public) among archives visitors. The activity focussed on identifying target audiences, locating them, getting in touch, inspiring them and give tools, support and advise to realise audience development projects.
As result of this activity. during 5 workshops, the RCHL developed and tested a training-tool that took the form of an extended PowerPoint-document. In this workshop participated archive CREARCH staff members form RHCL and 3 from other archives in the region: Rijckheyt Archives in Heerlen, De Domijnen Archives in Sittard and Sociaal Historisch Centrum Limburg.
