Performance-based interpretation is one of the primary tools we use to introduce visitors to historical events, narratives, and individuals that have impacted the world that we live in.
Since 2011, Atlanta History Center has used museum theatre and performance-based interpretation as one of our primary tools to introduce visitors to the important—and previously unacknowledged—historical events, narratives, and individuals that have impacted the world that we live in.
We design our programming to be inclusive, thought-provoking, immersive, and emotional. This approach has enabled us to create educational, community outreach, and public programs—both live and digital—that not only cultivate a space for building empathy, but also highlight the importance of history as a navigation tool for our contemporary experience.
