PEELING BACK THE LAYERS in natural and cultural heritage communication

Earlybird registration (to 15 September 2010)

You are invited to join us for PEELING BACK THE LAYERS. Get to the core of what matters in heritage interpretation at Interpretation Australia’s National Symposium, 10-12 Nov 2010, Launceston, Tasmania.

Staged on the Apple Isle, we will probe a range of ‘juicy’ topics that promise to reveal exciting and fresh new insights for professionals and new comers alike! Peeling back the layers offers a dynamic and varied program. Presentations, workshops, field trips and events at top natural and cultural interpretive sites will truly indulge our senses and creative spirit.

Our keynote speakers and program presenters will delve into the intricacies of telling difficult stories and present the new and the excellent in interpretation, with techniques to reach audiences of the new decade.

* Catherine McCarthy, USA, storyteller specialising in location-based interpretive technology.

* Angelina Russo examines the value of social media in interpretive practice through the keystones of participation, publication and partnership.

* Lycia Trouton explores monumentality and the intimate art of memory and story-telling.

* Jody Steele looks at the layers of technique in communicating archaeology to the public. * * Dillon Kombumerri brings insight into how cultural protocol, when working with Indigenous communities, can fundamentally shape design outcomes.

* Peter Grant uses Tasmania’s iconic Overland Track to examining how interpreters can reach the deepest layers within themselves to be true to their subject.

* Jane James explores how interpretation as a strategic priority can lead to stunning visitor experiences that are good for the visitor and good for business.

Field trips and off-site social venues have each been chosen to extend our experience of place and theme.
