Imagine the audience entering the Museum at night to enjoy an evening of Jurassic themed entertainment. Ticketholders will enjoy music, bar, exploring Museum related objects, torch-lit tours of Dippy the Dinosaur and a pop-up cinema screening. We are inviting artists with a diverse, collaborative outlook to contribute to this exciting immersive, interactive and multi-artform event (pre-recorded material may be accepted).

Using the form below please describe your proposal in 500 words. Please be aware that sound levels must be assessed before final agreement to protect the collections and installations must be free of the need of fixtures. If you are interested in submitting more than one idea, please use separate forms.
