The William Morris Gallery Art Fund Museum of the Year 2013: Interpretative Methodology Features | August 5, 2013

The great thing about developing interpretation – an art as much as a science – is that there is always something new and exciting to discover, however far removed the subject matter may seem at first glance. It’s a lesson learnt: I have developed interpretative frameworks for museums and heritage sites dedicated to everything from encaustic tiles and petroleum exploration to the Alps, via city histories, fossils, Shakespeare, sheep farming and polar bears... The key is to never feel daunted, and to always believe that something along the creative path will stop you in your tracks, quite unexpectedly, fuel your imagination, and everyone else’s in consequence.
