Taissa is an experienced interpretation specialist. She works with museums and historic buildings to help them tell their story, balancing the client’s needs and ambitions with the needs and expectations of visitors. She can help research and plan the story to be told and advise on the best way to communicate it. This could be a children’s treasure hunt, a series of themed workshops, an audio-guide or an exhibition – the outcome depends on the resources available, the target audience and the story itself.
Taissa can also help deliver new interpretation, writing briefs for designers and working with them to ensure design and content are harmoniously and creatively integrated. She is a skilled writer with a particular interest in ensuring that interpretation materials are accessible and engaging for young people.
Specialist subject areas include social history, literature and the arts, though she has also worked on several natural history exhibitions. Taissa has a Classics BA and a PGCert in Architectural History, both from the University of Oxford. Recent projects include a series of food history workshops for children at Basildon Park (National Trust) and writing and interpretation planning for the River and Rowing Museum, Sea City Museum and the University Church of St Mary the Virgin in Oxford.
