Dippy on Tour - Exhibition Design Opportunity
- 06 March 2018
An exhibition and interpretation design company is required to develop and deliver Dippy on Tour at Touchstones to open at Touchstones Rochdale in December 2019 with a smaller taster exhibits opening in October 2019.
Dippy on Tour will see the Natural History Museum’s iconic diplodocus skeleton tour the country to eight venues during 2018 - 2020. Dippy will be present in Rochdale from February to June 2020 (the penultimate venue), representing the North West leg of the tour. Dippy will be located at Number One Riverside, Rochdale Borough Council’s award winning customer service centre, library and office building. The project is being run by Rochdale Borough Council, in partnership with Link4Life, an independent charity which manages the Borough’s culture, heritage and leisure services.
In addition to displaying Dippy at Number One Riverside, the Dippy on Tour North West Team have committed to developing an accompanying exhibition and interpretation at Touchstones Rochdale, the Borough museum and art gallery located close to Number One Riverside. The exhibition will be run for the duration of Dippy’s visit and it is our intention that visitors will experience both Dippy and the exhibition as part of their visit to Rochdale.
