Our colleagues over at the Blackpool Museum Project are seeking an artist to deliver a Wordpool Family Day workshop as part of their development phase. 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.

Blackpool Museum Project is an exciting new project – the vision is to create a brand new museum telling the Blackpool story. This 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.
