Preparations for the next IE conference are in full swing and we hope you are curious enough to find out more and think about joining us in May. 

Countless emails have been exchanged already and telephone connections went wild. The programme is (almost) ready, the first keynote speakers of international standing have confirmed their attendance and the wonderful Estonian people are waiting to share their experience, thoughts and enthusiasm with you. 

Our study visits will take you to world famous places like Tallinn and hidden treasures on Muhu island; we will follow dedicated nature guides across the moor and watch birds or enter deep discussions with people working in different museum settings and cultural sites. And, last but not least, we will enjoy delicious Estonian food at manor houses and other places full of history.

But, of course, an Interpret Europe conference lives through your active participation. Maybe the holiday season is a good time for contemplation and creative ideas regarding your contribution – be it a presentation or interactive workshop. All requirements can be found here: 

Only a short time is left until the beginning of 2020 when a detailed programme will be available online and registration opens. Be curious and visit the conference page in January: 

We are looking forward to a lively, fruitful and inspiring conference 2020 in Haapsalu! See you there!
