Are you passionate about cultural heritage?
IE’s Cultural Heritage Team is looking for members. Our goals are to promote co-creation and multiple voices in heritage interpretation; to advocate for professional heritage interpretation to policy and decision makers and to identify developments in policy and disciplines relevant to cultural heritage interpretation. There are already some ideas on concrete actions to realise these goals and further ideas will be developed by the team.
If you think you can realistically contribute up to three hours per month to support the team, why not join us? For further questions, or to express your interest in becoming a team member, please email [email protected].
Tourism Team call for members
What comes to your mind first when you read the word of the great author Henry Miller: “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things”?
Interpret Europe’s Tourism Team has just entered a new stage. We are looking for new team members who would like to join forces in creating the initiatives and projects that will bring unforgettable memories to the people around the world. Why not help travellers to experience the places, artefacts and activities that authentically represent the stories and people of any destination?
If the answer is yes, you should probably join IE’s Tourism Team!
With the upcoming ‘Recreating tourism through heritage interpretation’ conference and initiative, the Tourism Team has an opportunity to serve as an inspirational point for anyone interested both in natural and cultural features of a destination, as well as their relation to heritage tourism. Our goal is to help all those creative people to develop their own tourism initiatives in a very authentic and meaningful way using the interpretation as a powerful tool.
If you feel that you are ready for this call and you can contribute up to five hours per month in supporting the team, why not join us? Get in touch: [email protected].
Do you tweet?
Do you like your content only a scroll away? The latest news from your favourite organisations, events and news you feel passionate about all in one place? You are the kind of person for us!
The Social Media Team invites people who would like to support IE social media content by creating or searching for latest news stories about heritage interpretation and related topics. Do you like tweeting? Could you help us?
We would also like to explore how we can say everything there is to say about Interpret Europe and heritage interpretation in short videos and individuals who would like to dive into the world of podcasts would also be welcome in the team.

Media library: Show us your photos!
A quick reminder about our ongoing call to help us fill the IE media library with images that can be used in newsletters, brochures, on our website and social media, etc.
If you have photos from past IE events and conferences, training courses, have taken photos showing examples of best practice interpretation or have some beautiful images of heritage and/or people gaining a deeper meaning through heritage interpretation, please contact us to find out how to upload your images or follow the instructions here if you have a Google account:
Please note that we need your assurance that you own the copyright to the images and that anyone who features prominently in any photos has given their consent to be published.
We’re looking forward to seeing your photos – and sharing them with our wider network. Thanks to those who have already contributed.
