NEMO invited to host an event on interpreting the museum

On 20 March 2023 from 17:00-18:15 CET, the online talk ‘Museum revisited - Interpreting the museum’ takes place. NEMO will moderate the session that will look into working methods and interpretation strategies for the redisplay of the Burrell Collection.

The event aims to investigate how an exhibit ‘materialises’ as a result of the joint effort of a content specialist such as a curator or subject expert working with an interpretation manager and a community.

NEMO’s Margherita Sani will moderate the discussions with the speakers Caroline Currie and Laura Bauld, who worked on the major refurbishment and redisplay of The Burrell Collection in Glasgow, Scotland. Join to learn how they brought objects to life with 90 digital displays offering interactive and immersive experiences for visitors of all ages and backgrounds.

The webinar, organised by the British Council Italy in collaboration with ICOM Italy, will offer participants a peek into the backstage of interpretation in a museum and provide them with tools and methodologies that they could use in their everyday work, sharing practical examples to illustrate the different steps of the path that connects an initial idea to an exhibition creation.
