Jasper Visser is Inspired by Coffee

Change agent, innovator & facilitator in the cultural and heritage sectors.

Hi, my name is Jasper

And I help public and private sector organisations and ambitious individuals with innovative strategies and new audience engagement ideas.

In the past 10+ years I’ve worked with clients from 20+ different countries (counting the Republic of Jämtland to which I hold a life-time visa) on digital engagement, co-creation, gamification, 21st century capacity building and tons of other topics.

I prefer to work in settings where value is more than money, and engagement is more than a successful sale. So apart from forward-thinking multinationals, I work with cultural and heritage institutions, NGOs, authors and artists and I’ve even worked with the biggest political experiment in the world.

My solutions aren’t predefined and range from facilitated workshops to long-term strategy design. I wish I could be more specific, but I fear our current-day challenges usually don’t have off-the-shelf solutions. Read on and I’ll show you what I’ve done.

The Museum of the Future

Participation and innovation in culture and heritage

The Museum of the Future started back in 2009 when I was asked by visionary museum directors Erik Schilp and Valentijn Byvanck to develop the new media & technology of the new Museum of National History of the Netherland. The museum never materialized, but the experiments we did proved a blueprint for cultural and heritage institutions around the world.

In the years since I’ve helped institutions around the world innovate and create value through digital media and new ways of working. On The Museum of the Future blog I have recorded nearly 200 cases of innovation in museums, many of them based on the work I’ve done internationally or conversations with the many bright people I’ve met.

Digital media and peacebuilding

What is the role of digital media and technology in peace building and conflict resolution? In other words: can the digital revolution ultimately make the world a safer and more respectful place?

The question has been triggered by work I’ve done with Cultural Heritage without Borders in the Balkans, online courses and communities I partake in and – in a way – George Clooney. I hope to be able to find answers in the coming years through a series of blogposts, articles and projects on the topic.

The Digital Engagement Framework

The Digital engagement framework helps you identify the value creation opportunities of digital engagement for your organisation and develop the strategies, processes and technologies to structurally engage your audience to maximize your co-created value.

The Digital engagement framework is developed in close cooperation with professionals in a variety of industries, including consumer services, gaming, leisure and culture & heritage, where the framework was initially launched. Currently, it’s in use in 100s of organisations around the world.

Jasper developed the Digital Engagement Framework together with Jim Richardson from Sumo and 3,244 others. For a full disclaimer, all the tools and free downloads, check the website.
