PROV Workshop

Thursday 21st February
Stratford Historical Museum
Start 9.30am for 10am, finish 4pm

Training Workshop from PROV: 
Interpretation: Revealing the stories in collections.

Designed to improve skills in interpretation, this training workshop offer tips and ideas to engage visitors with museum objects.

Topics include: principles of heritage interpretation, making connections with audiences and use of media.

Learn techniques to help impart the messages you want to share. Enhance your visitors’ experience through meaningful and provocative interpretation of your collection and you will connect them to your region’s heritage forever!

Through activities in this workshop, you will have the opportunity to contribute ideas and knowledge of your area and collection to the development of Public Record Office Victoria's touring exhibition, 'What's in a Name'. This exhibition is about how land has been lost, lived in, named, bought, sold and altered in Victoria. The naming of places in Victoria is a story about our relationship to land. Through looking at how and why places are named, or renamed, we can explore the changing relationship Victorians have had, and continue to have, to land and country.
