Gosport Gallery and SEARCH currently operate from the Old Grammar School building at the top of Gosport High Street. Funding has been secured to redevelop this venue by April 2022, transforming it into Gosport Museum and Art Gallery.
The new museum is a key component of the Hampshire Cultural Trust’s redevelopment plans for the Gosport site. Alongside a new café, courtyard and community gallery, refurbished learning spaces and updated art gallery, the museum will make Gosport’s rich history and heritage more visible for residents and visitors alike.
This tender invites proposals for delivery of the community engagement, the exhibition design and exhibition interpretation elements of the wider project. Through community engagement the contractor will work with a diverse cross section of the Gosport community to select the stories and develop the interpretation that make up the long-term displays in the new Gosport Museum. The resulting narrative will inform a creative exhibition design and the contractor will lead on the development and delivery of the displays and subsequently the interpretation.
We welcome proposals from two or more organisations collaborating to fulfil the scope of the brief. In such circumstances one organisation will lead on the bid and communications with Hampshire Cultural Trust.Full details [external link]
