Evolving for the Future

September 11-15, 2017
Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology 

Over eighty interpreters hailing from Haida Gwaii to PEI and everywhere in between gathered for five days at the Royal Tyrrell Museum.  Conference delegates came from zoos, gardens, museums, parks, nature centres, and historic sites, to share ideas, meet colleagues, and take wacky pictures while pretending to be dinosaurs. 

John Acorn gave us some new principles to consider, while Sandra Corbeil encouraged us to embrace technology.  Concurrent sessions had us critiquing museum displays, imagining our perfect countries, discussing what inspires us, deprogramming school programs, and more. A field trip day took us to the Atlas Coal Mine and the East Coulee School Museum to see interpretation in action, and a powerful panel on indigenous interpretation inspired many important conversations.

Our 2018 Conference will take place online, and we are currently looking for a host site for our 2019 conference.
