The Power Hall
This reinterpretation project took its lead from the extraordinary assembly of engines at the heart of the Science and Industry Museum’s Power Hall. Appointed as Interpretation Consultant, Polly’s role was to enable the Core Team to define their Vision for the gallery reinterpretation. This included defining audiences and outcomes; shaping and articulating the interpretation of the objects, testing and refining the narratives and methods of interpretation; determining how best to harness the use of digital to create impact and interactivity to support the interpretation and considering how and where to create opportunities for intergenerational exchange and planning what the visitor experience could be when the gallery is not in full steam. Polly worked closely with the Museum’s own Interpretation Manager and facilitated a series of workshops with the Project Team that helped them to shape and ultimately to issue the Design Brief.
