Interpretation Specialist Required



The Out of Town Museum (OOT) is a National Lottery Heritage Funded project, that celebrates the rural heritage of Coquetdale. Since 2019, the project has been collecting local memories, voices, artefacts and photographs in order to preserve these in perpetuity and to celebrate them as unique features of our local heritage. The Out of Town Museum focusses on the heritage of getting ‘oot and aboot’ with particular interest in the journeys, routes and the stories they tell, ultimately building a new archive of rural heritage.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we now require an Interpretation Specialist to design, build and initially install an exhibition which will tour the local area in April / May 2023 before being installed as a temporary exhibition in Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery from 29th May – 30th June 2023, showcasing the dialect and heritage of this unique rural area.

OOT has a strong brand image created at the start of the project and artwork will be available to the successful appointee to use.

Contract Brief

The aim of the interpretation is to present this unique way of life before it is lost forever via a high-quality mobile interpretation and digital archive, using words, images, sounds and objects, showing how life used to be for people living in Coquetdale.
