Nominee AHK Eindwerkprijs 2021: Andrea Lagrutta
Studies: Museology (MA), Reinwardt Academy
Graduation project: The Democratization of Knowledge
Medium: research thesis with model for assessment and smart use of knowledge
Andrea Lagrutta, graduated as Master of Museology (MA) at Reinwardt Academy, AHK / Amsterdam University of the Arts.
For her thesis titled The Democratization of Knowledge, Lagrutta did research on the exchange of knowledge within and by an Amsterdam heritage organization during a period of rapid growth. Not only did she systematically map the development of the organization, but also critically analyzed the methods that the organization uses to contribute to the development of knowledge throughout the wider society. She combined her own observations, case studies and interviews with insights from different disciplines. The result is a new firmly substantiated model for knowledge management.
