Crossing borders

19-21 May 2017
Prague, Czech Republic

Interpret Europe's Spring Event 2017 was held in Prague with 75 participants from 23 countries taking part. The event was organised by SIMID, the Czech Association for Heritage Interpretation. It took place at Toulcův dvůr, a medieval farm estate which had recently been turned into an eco-centre.

The programme included three keynote speeches, 28 workshops and presentations, two study visits to the historic centre of Prague and a Market of Ideas with posters and speakers' corner.

In order to increase the quality of their work, participants discussed the event theme 'Crossing borders' within four strands:

  • Developments in interpretation theory and practice
  • Heritage interpretation in Eastern Europe
  • Heritage interpretation in higher education
  • Interpret Europe's training programme.

Borders? I have never seen one.
But I have heard they exist
in the minds of some people.
