Subject: Join our first 2006 training day - an invitation from
Dear GEM Listmembers,
As one of the directors of IMTAL-Europe, the International Museum Theatre
Alliance, I would like to invite you to join our next training day in York

focus on indoor collections (advisable in January!), looking at how to
attract non-traditional audiences to traditionally male-orientated
science/technology museums such as NRM through theatre/live interpretation.
We'll have demonstrations of live interpretation in situ in the morning and
will be working on different techniques in workshops all afternoon. IMTAL
directors Jo Kemp and Verity Walker will be leading the day. We can promise
you hard work, good fun and great networking!
Timetable: arrival 10.00 onwards, coffee from 10.30, day commences 10.45

vegetarian food but please specify any other food requirements - at 12.30.
