Cultuur Lokaal was a collaboration between the Waterwolf laboratories (Haagse Hogeschool lectoraat Society and ICT by Dick Rijken and three cultural institutions in Gouda: the Public Library Gouda, the Regional archive Central-Holland, Museum GoudA) and The Patchingzone in The Netherlands.

We were working with professionals in the three cultural institutions to investigate new opportunities for collaborations with (in)formal local networks. The Cultuur Lokaal project aimed to inspire the cultural institutes to explore new ways to engage with the people in the street and local networks. We aimed to address contemporary issues connected with the re-positioning of cultural institutes in the digital age. The investigation dealt with the changing relation between professionals in the institutes and their audience as well as the role of the institutes in society.
