About this event

Despite modern technology, heritage interpretation panels remain a popular, practical and relatively inexpensive means of explaining the significance of our cultural and natural heritage asset to people.  This workshop will provide you with the opportunity to learn the ‘ins and outs’ of producing successful heritage interpretation panels, including: writing copy and layering messages, choosing visuals, and panel design and production. The course is hands-on, and will involve classroom training together with the opportunity to design your own interpretation panel under the expert tutelage of Crispian Emberson from HDC International. The course is ideal for curators, site and reserve managers, tourism officers and park rangers based at historic and natural environmental sites and visitor destinations.

Crispian Emberson, found of HDC, is a highly regarded international interpretation expert. He is a fully qualified NAI and NPS heritage interpretation professional with over 30 years’ experience working at a senior level within the international tourism community.  During his career he has undertaken a huge range of heritage interpretation projects for thousands of clients in over 40 countries around the world.
