This course is designed for museum and heritage staff who are considering using live interpretation to enhance the visitor experience at their sites.
The day will provide opportunity to work in groups, try out practical activities, look at costume and accoutrements from various periods and have fun!
The course will cover:
- Why live interpretation at your site? What can it offer you?
- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – learn from best and worst practice
- “But I can’t act!” – have a go at a few practical live interpretation activities
- The “nitty gritty” – use a project planner to organise your future event/resource
By the end of the course participants will:
- have discovered what live interpretation could be like at their site
- have gained some practical activities ideas
- have started to plan a live interpretation event/resource
- take away a list of contacts and sites for further resources
