… We have a right to know as Tom Waits sings/croons/says on his wonderful album Mule Variations.
A few sentences about what I have been doing/are up to these days:
Upcoming cross European project:
As a consultant, I am working with two well known European organisations on what could be a substantial new game-changing project for libraries and citizenship. I will update you more on this when there is news and when I can reveal more.
Libraries and health:
Culture can play an essential part in health and in recovery from illness. Research shows this, and several projects worldwide have been completed or are ongoing. To create a healthy, happy, meaningful life for everyone, we have to recognise the power of artists, arts organisations, museums and libraries in healthcare and beyond. Stories and the narratives people tell about their own lives also have a role to play. The new project will be research-based and evolves around this mindset.
Yet another still secret project. Yes, transparency is a core value for me, but I am however to negotiate with core partners, and it would be disrespectful to share info they need to know first.
Strategy and leadership:
I recently hade the opportunity to talk share my experience and view on strategic leadership with professionals doing leadership training. I am also working as a consultant on strategy, strategy implementation and mentoring of new leaders.
I am once again Co-Charing Internet Librarian International. I hope to see you soon in London, UK!
