    Background and context

    World Monuments Fund (WMF) is the leading independent organization devoted to safeguarding the world’s most treasured places to enrich people’s lives and build mutual understanding across cultures and communities. Since 1965, WMF’s global team of experts has worked to preserve the world's diverse cultural heritage through field projects at more than 700 project sites, located in 112 countries. WMF now seeks to understand the potential for the development of an integrated interpretation program at a group of select project sites. Candidate sites are most likely to be drawn from the organization’s portfolio of “Signature” projects, which are projects where WMF has made a sustained commitment, intended to address multiple conservation and other challenges, with a view to transformational impact at the level of the project site and beyond. WMF seeks to strike a balance between the development of state-of-the-art interpretation centers that will bring global visibility to Signature project sites and sensitivity to the local context and specificity of each place, project, and communities. WMF is seeking a researcher to carry out a study of visitor centers at heritage places and provide recommendations for the development of an effective site interpretation program for WMF project sites.

    The study should be informed by a review of relevant literature, interviews with practitioners, and well-documented case studies.
