Telling Heritage

Organised by The Ashmolean Museum. This unique and practical two day course blends together traditional storytelling and best practice in live heritage interpretation. It will provide participants with a far reaching exploration of how to plan and deliver inspirational storytelling in cultural places.Thoughtful, well planned storytelling is central in creating powerful visitor experiences. Stories draw out the intangible significance of places, features and objects and connect visitors both emotionally and intellectually.

Using real world examples and opportunities to work in the galleries of The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, this course will equip participants with all the tools to deliver high quality heritage storytelling.

The course is aimed at people working in heritage who want to incorporate storytelling into their events and also for storytellers who want to tell in the heritage sector. Some basic storytelling experience is expected.
