The Heritage Management Organization (HERITΛGE) organized a 3-day intensive online workshop from 2 to 4 October 2020 on “Introduction to Heritage Interpretation for Site Managers”.
10 heritage managers from Nepal, Iran, Turkey, Tunisia, Gambia, Greece and Italy have been trained in heritage interpretation, making visitors’ experience meaningful and unforgettable. Through interactive exercises, group work, presentations and discussions, participants learned how to turn phenomena into experiences, provoke resonance in visitors of heritage sites, offer paths to deeper meaning and foster respect for all heritage, as well as how to give and receive feedback to and from their peers.
The workshop was conducted by Valya Stergioti, a freelance interpretive trainer and planner. She has more than 20 years of experience in organizing and implementing interpretive workshops about heritage for adults and children. She works in collaboration with different NGOs and other institutions all over Greece and has more than 10 years’ experience in adult training.
