This one-day workshop focuses on ways you can make your exhibits more meaningful to your visitors through interpretation. We will examine the place of interpretation in exhibits and practice proven techniques of interpretive writing. Discussion and group activities will teach participants how to create relevance for visitors, develop memorable exhibit themes, and create hierarchies to engage visitors of all interest levels. This workshop is part of the WWI Centennial Series, and while examples from WWI are utilized, the information presented is applicable to everyone.
