Consultant opportunities

Hardy Exhibition Concept Developer

As part of our National Portfolio Organisation programme, our partner museums will deliver a major exhibition on the life and work of Thomas Hardy in the summer of 2021. We wish to use the exhibition as a platform to engage more diverse audiences in Hardy’s life and work, and how it connects the history and context of the Wessex landscape. The exhibition will take place simultaneously in all four of the partner museums, telling different ‘chapters’ of a single narrative around Thomas Hardy. The exhibition will then tour a minimum of 4 venues nationally.

The Wessex Museums Partnership requires an experienced and innovative exhibition specialist to develop the concept of this important exhibition for the partnership.

Interested consultants are asked to submit a written proposal that includes:

  • Written details of how you meet the criteria for selection and no more than two sides of A4 describing how you would undertake the work outlined above.
  • Details of the individual/s who will work on the project along with their CVs.
  • An outline of previous experience in this area of work and an example of this work.
  • Two references.
  • A breakdown of the fee linked to the activities required to deliver the brief, according to number days and daily rates.

Please find more details below.
