Global Excellence in Interpretation Free Webinar Series – AHI

July 1 @ 2:00 am - 3:00 am AEST


Meet the team behind the Museum of London’s AHI 2021 Award-winning project, Dub London: Bassline of a City. This was a temporary exhibition open to the public from 2020 to 2021 that interpreted the cultural heritage of Black and Caribbean Londoners through dub – Jamaican music and culture that helped to define community identity.

Dub London is an excellent example of a co-produced exhibition that was shaped by the research and conversations undertaken during interpretive planning. Without this work and the willingness of the Museum of London to co-curate their temporary display area, Dub London may not have truly represented the dub community and interpreted wider Black London culture and society. It also led to successfully opening museum doors to welcome a more diverse audience.

The exhibition won the 2021 Untold Stories and AHI Excellence Awards. The AHI citation for the awards is ‘Dub London is a co-curated project that provokes thought, reveals meanings, engages emotions and tells little-known stories, and which has successfully attracted new and diverse audiences to the museum.’

The exhibition is part of the Museum’s programme of inviting Londoners to share their heritage, adding to the museum’s permanent collection and shaping their headline temporary displays. Curated online content can be explored prior to the webinar on the Museum of London website.

The current and previous AHI Awards Group Chairs will host a panel session with the Dub London team then invite questions from webinar participants.

See you there!

While interpreters have shifted to digital communication through online webinars and meetings, interpreters’ professional associations around the world have increased their activity, developing and providing online services to members, including training, conferences, one-off events, and more. This accelerated trend has given us an opportunity to share good practices more widely across the world, with interpreters from different countries and indeed different continents joining events of interest to them. This series will develop a pilot international webinar series under the Global Alliance for Heritage Interpretation banner.

This yearlong series of webinars hosted by seven interpretation organizations around the world is free to all interpreters, regardless of membership or affiliation with any of the sponsor organizations! English-Spanish live translation will be available.

Webinars will be hosted by the Association for Heritage Interpretation, InterpatMX (Mexico), Interpretation Australia, Interpretation Canada, Interpret Europe, Interpretation Network New Zealand, and the National Association for Interpretation on the following dates in 2022:
