Executive Leadership Program in Heritage Management Workshops

Interpretive Writing for                                                                Natural and Cultural Heritage

A jointly certified course by Interpret Europe and                                                              the Heritage Management Organization

3-7 November 2018 (with available option of a 3-day course, 3-5 November)

Location: The Heritage Management Organization Headquarters                       Kimonos 11 & Pagkalou streets, 19200, Elefsina, Greece

heritageThe key to effective word-based Heritage Interpretation is written text that grabs and holds the reader’s attention.

During a 5-day course participants will discover and practice a wide range of techniques to engage readers and master the techniques of interpretive writing. Participants will have the opportunity to strive to become a Certified Interpretive Writer awarded by Interpret Europe, the European Association for Heritage Interpretation, after successfully completing, and being assessed on, the following exercises:

1) develop a strong theme for a piece of interpretive writing

2) turn a poorly written and laid out graphic panel into a good example of interpretive writing and panel presentation

3) prepare a piece of interpretive writing incorporating the techniques taught in the course

4) edit and rewrite some difficult text utilizing the principles of interpretive writing and the importance of plain language

In addition to the tasks above, participants will take part in a range of other exciting activities. This includes a visit to the Elefsina archaeological site looking at how it is interpreted - creating a new graphic panel. Participants will also write a creative interpretive text about their chosen heritage feature in Elefsina.

3-day option

This year we are offering a 3-day option from 3-5 November. Participants selecting this option should be aware that 16 additional hours of coursework must be done at home, including completing the certification tasks. Please indicate your preference on the form.
