Interpretation Network New Zealand (INNZ) Chair Stephen Espiner is enthusiastic about the opportunty to host this sister organisation and hopes kiwi interpreters from across the sector will support the event and take the chance to share their work on the international stage.
“Many of our local interpreters are involved with exciting, ground-breaking projects and the Wellington conference presents a rare opportunity to showcase this talent among an international audience of peers,” said Espiner.
“NAI’s last international conference in Montreal was attended by interpretation practitioners, planners and researchers from 14 countries around the world and was a tremendous opportunity to reflect on the emerging challenges associated with this diverse field. I am looking forward to continuing the global interpretation conversation from within our own unique position here in Aotearoa.”
The theme of the conference is ‘Tihei Mauri Ora; the story begins’. Presentations around this theme as well as others are welcomed. Conference tracks include research, leadership and development, indigenous cultures and interpretation, partnerships and collaborations, emerging trends and technology, nurturing guardianship, and living collections.
