Join heritage interpretation specialist Jo Scott for a half-day workshop full of inspiring ideas and practical tools for sharing your heritage stories successfully.  This session is designed for anyone involved with researching and presenting their heritage, from community archivists and museum volunteers to those caring for historic buildings or countryside sites, and who is looking for creative and practical solutions for engaging local people and visitors of all ages and interests.

 

Jo will begin by showcasing exciting examples of interpretive best practice, sharing a wealth of innovative ways to tell your stories from cost-effective quick wins to big ideas (along with a few examples of What Not To Do!).  The second half of the session will show you how to turn your great idea into an realistic and achievable scheme, with practical tips for planning your project and presenting your proposals to funders.  And be ready to get creative – you’ll have the opportunity to test out your new skills too!
