We are just making the final edits to the conference programme, which will be published here shortly.
This year’s conference is all about provoking conversations. And the best way to get visitors thinking and talking is to make sure your interpretation offers them some interesting ideas, or themes. Good themes can inspire the work of writers, guides, designers and illustrators. They guide your selection of which stories and content to include, and they’re an essential reference point to keep a project on track. But what’s the difference between a theme, a message, a story and a topic? And how do you choose between all the different themes you could use?
This workshop will look at the idea of a theme in depth. It will give you a chance to see how themes work, discuss any difficulties you have with them, and practice working with them. James Carter, who will lead the event, has made a special study of thematic interpretation and has helped many people to understand the topic through his training and teaching work.
The workshop will include presentations and activities, and provide inspiration and ideas that you can put into practice.
Tickets cost £60.00. We anticipate this being popular so please book soon.
