Jamie Taylor

Storytelling Consultant

BA History, Northumbria University, MA Public History (distinction), University of York.

I curate, plan interpretation and produce copy for museums and cultural organisations. I’m here to help you tell stories about history, science, art and engineering.

I can turn any story into a meaningful experience that connects you with your audience. From major shows to curious interventions and art commissions, I’ll take you from an idea to opening night and beyond.

I take a user centred approach that puts people at the heart of every interpretation solution. My knowledge of a wide range of audiences and the latest sector thinking means that each of my projects is maximised for accessibility and engagement.

I can take your content and give it structure and meaning. I’ll help you make sure that it’s delivered in the right way and that it works hard to engage your target audience. I’ll untangle what you want to say and work with you to find out what’s most important. Together, we’ll turn this into a clear message that will make a real impact on your visitors.
