Start Projects Interpretation for heritage protection

Interpretation for heritage protection

In 2019 we publishedthe Polish translation of Freeman Tilden’s iconic bookInterpreting Our Heritage and thus we started a debateInterpretation for heritage protection. Through our conferences, seminars and publications we want to expandthe term ‘heritage interpretation’ so that it becomes a tool that can be used for heritage protection.

We decided to place at the centre of the debate the issue of the public discourse on heritage, which we want to analyse from various angles and from the point of view of contemporary science and practice in the fields of heritage, remembrance, education and tourism.

Interpretation for heritage protection was born out of both our need to mindfully and responsibly shape heritage and our conviction that the idea of heritage interpretation has to be constantly reviewed.
