This Time It’s Personal:
Rethinking Non-Personal Interpretation
Join us for our Online Conference!
Sept 22 – 24, 2020
Signage, exhibits, labels, brochures, booklets, and digital media are all referred to as 'non-personal interpretation', but we think it's time to change the way we talk about them. Interpretation is an art – and art is personal.
Meet us online to focus on 'non-personal' interpretation. What do best practices look like in 2020? How can we use interpretive media to help visitors make personal connections? Should we retire the term 'non-personal interpretation'? We are looking for conference sessions that help us explore these questions, offer case studies, share research findings, or inspire us to rethink any aspect of non-personal interpretation.
Lend your voice! Our call for presenters is now available via Google Form.
Proposal deadline is May 31, 2020.
