 More about the ADDED project and the tool

The overall aim of the project is to support lifelong learning providers in the sector of amateur arts, voluntary culture, and heritage in the Nordic – Baltic region to gain better methods and tools to assess and compare the added community values of their cultural activities. Until now, learning providers in the sector can find and use many good practice examples from peers
as inspiration, but they still need more systematic tools and methods on how to assess own activities and get pathfinders for improved practice.

 The objectives are thus to:

  • Provide a combined desk and field survey to clarify the state of arts of added community values in the cross-cultural civil society sector, and thereby to disclose relevant focus points, topics and related indicators regarding four key areas of added values: 1) Local identity and social cohesion; 2) Social inclusion; 3) Active citizenship & democracy; 4) Environmental sustainability.
  • Develop an appropriate online Benchmarking Tool incl. methodological guideline, which allows the stakeholders to assess the added values of their activities in different dimensions and categories of societal benefits.
  • Disseminate the results to the wider cross-cultural civil society communities and other key stakeholders in the Nordic – Baltic region in a sustainable manner. After the end of the project, we will embed the developed methods and tools in our own networks’ daily practice; and we intend to multiplicate the results to other culture associations and to mainstream the results to decision-makers, researchers, and other multipliers in our Nordic and Baltic communities.
