Tender for exhibition design –

Where Your Wings Were, Journeys with David Almond

Single exhibition contract, exhibition opening date 22nd June 2018

Seven Stories is an award winning National museum for children’s books in Newcastle upon Tyne. We are seeking a design company to work with on our upcoming exhibition for family audiences, Where Your Wings Were – Journeys with David Almond

David Almond is one of Britain’s most outstanding writers for children and young adults. His novels and stories, often set in his native Northumberland, have wide national and international appeal and have been translated into 40 languages. When his debut novel Skellig was published in 1998 it captivated readers and critics on both sides of the Atlantic and became an immediate bestseller. It won the Library Association’s Carnegie Medal and was named the Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year.

David’s work has been very successfully adapted for stage and screen, lending itself well to theatrical interpretation. It is therefore proposed that a theatrical approach is taken in the design of this exhibition. To appeal to as large an audience as possible, including those who are not familiar with David’s work, an immersive and sensory theatre-set style experience will be created.

Interview date: Thursday 1st March 2018
