If you book or have booked a place to attend this workshop and it is necessary to postpone the event, to ensure the safety of participants, you will have the option to attend on the revised date or receive a full refund.

At the heart of an effective exhibition or cultural experience is a story or range of narratives. Stories that bring the past to life, offer new perspectives on the present, help visitors to develop their ideas and creativity, and provide a sense of belonging and wellbeing.

To communicate these stories effectively the interpretation and wayfinding in an exhibition and venue at large must be well planned, designed and implemented, as well as suited to the audiences who will engage with it. For this reason, excellent and timely interpretative planning is essential.

This one-day workshop will provide attendees with the tools and resources to develop an effective and layered interpretative strategy, to guide the development of their visitor experience. It will consider:

– The range of interpretative approaches available

– Storytelling

– Audience focussed interpretation

– Structures for interpretative planning

– How to develop an interpretative strategy

– A range of case studies

During the course of the day, delegates with the opportunity to put the learning and ideas shared into practice.

The workshop is delivered by a TEG trainer.
