The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Workshop: Intepretation Planning (London/UK, 21 May 2009)

"Intepretation Planning: A Step By Step Guide to Doing it Yourself"
21 May, 2009: London

Anne Fletcher, formerly Head of Interpretation at the Historic Royal
Palaces, leads this interactive session on putting together interpretation
strategies for your organisation. Education and access budgets are often
the first to be cut when funding gets tight, and funding for consultants is
often reduced or eliminated altogether.

In this day-long session, Anne will take delegates through the four major
stages of interpretation planning so you can do it yourself. Anne will give
useful examples from her work at St. Paul's and Rochester Cathedrals, the
Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace. By the end of the day, delegates
will have produced an outline of their own plan to kick-start their own
planning strategies…the first step in getting funding for your projects.

Delegate places are £197 plus VAT for the first delegate. Subsequent
delegates each get £20 off the standard rate.
