#FinallyFriday: Open to Interpretation

Interpretation is a fundamental part of how we communicate heritage to the public, but what does the term ‘interpretation’ actually mean? Peter Inker and Angela Pfenninger join us in our next #FinallyFriday Show to explore the world of interpretation.

Dr Peter Inker is a Board Member of EXARC and has been at Colonial Williamsburg for the last 13 years, focusing much of his attention on virtual and digital heritage space. Angela Pfenninger is a live interpreter who is specialised in theatre and storytelling, and has been the chairperson of the International Museum Theatre Alliance IMTAL for the last three years.

Join us for a deep dive into the growing interplay between physical and digital interpretations, the role of emotional presentation of relationships between powerful people and marginalized people in the past, and what COVID-19 has thrown up in terms of museum interpretation strategies. Our guests will be live on the EXARC Discord to answer your questions on Friday, 4 September 2020 at 17:00h Central European Time. We look forward to seeing you there!
