Association for Heritage Interpretation (AHI)

AHI is the membership body for interpreters within the UK. It began life in 1975 as the Society for the Interpretation of Britain’s Heritage and now has a membership of over 500 interpreters not just from Britain, but from around the world.

The Association for Heritage Interpretation is a key forum for anyone interested in interpretation – the art of helping people explore and appreciate our world.

AHI believes that interpretation enriches our lives through engaging emotions, enhancing experiences and deepening understanding of places, people, events and objects from the past and present.

AHI aims to promote excellence in the practice and provision of interpretation and to gain wider recognition of interpretation as a professional activity.
