The interpretation at Eltham Palace was awarded the winner in the ‘Museums and historic properties’ category of the Association for Heritage Interpretation (AHI) Discover Heritage Awards in October 2015. But great interpretation doesn’t just happen; it requires great vision and research, planning, creativity, and evaluation, as well as great teamwork and cooperation if the investment of time, money and resources is to be rewarded with interpretation that has impact and makes a real difference to the intended audiences.

Our workshop will look in depth at the planning and development of this innovative interpretation project. The workshop will:
• Explain how the project brief evolved
• Explore the planning process
• Reveal the creative development challenges
• Examine the testing and evaluation process and outcomes
• Share the EH experience in working with volunteers and the 
  important role they play in the project
• Allow you to ‘step back in time’ and experience for yourself the
  range of interpretive media employed in this project

There will also be opportunity for discussion with the planners and designers of the interpretation. They will answer questions as well as openly explore what could have been done better and what lessons have been learnt.

Who is it for?
The workshop is intended for anyone working in interpretation planning and content development who wants to meet and share ideas, activities and information with others who undertake similar work.

The day will include presentations and activities, and provide inspiration and ideas that you can put into practice when developing your own interpretation projects.
