Conference - Persona Development

IMTAL Workshop/Conference
"From Dusk till Dawn: Persona Development from First Idea to Performance" and AGM 2023
Venue will be announced soon!

Are you passionate about communicating the past? Do you want to take visitors to museums, heritage sites and historic venues on an exciting journey to a past era? Then the IMTAL conference is for you. During the conference, you will work with experts in museum theatre. Through lectures and practical exercises you will jointly develop first person personas for a murder mystery game at a historical location/museum, from the initial idea through scientific research to the writing of the role, practical rehearsal and the actual performance. The murder mystery game will be performed together on the last evening in the venue and brings participants together for an event in the historic venue where they find themselves at the center of a mysterious murder scene. The main focus is on the learning outcome for potential visitors, which you can take home with you to put into practice at your own museum, historic venue or heritage site. The aim is for visitors to understand the historical significance of the historical site/museum and its internal function in an entertaining manner through first-person interpretations within the murder mystery game. After the workshop/conference, the participants of the workshop/conference should be able to independently carry out outcome-oriented first person interpretations for visitors at their historical locations or in museums.
