The Blackpool Museum Project-
an exciting new project with the vision is to create a brand new museum telling the Blackpool story.
It will be no conventional museum – it will be a dynamic and celebratory space – a blend of museum, visitor attraction and theatre, filled with artefacts, film, music and performance. It will be immersive, participatory and inclusive. It will have a strong personality with a memorable and distinctive take which is true to the lively spirit of Blackpool. Blackpool Council is currently in the development stage of this project, with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. We aim to open the doors in 2018.
During these development stages, the Blackpool Museum Project will be engaging with the community in all sorts of different ways, including delivering a workshop as part of the family day for Wordpool Festival on Saturday 4 July 2015.
They are seeking expressions of interest from creative practitioners who would like to be considered to develop a family-friendly installation and drop in workshop using the Blackpool Tower menagerie as the inspiration.
Does this sound like something for you? Would you be able to plan, prepare, and deliver the workshop with support from
the museum team and volunteers?
