Bidders are asked to submit a formal tender for the “Wondrous Place Gallery AV Hardware Immersive Tender”.

The deadline to procure, test and install all hardware equipment on gallery is 15 October 2021.

The successful AV hardware providers are responsible to establish clear and effective communication channels, supported by NML’s project manager and NML’s relevant project team, with the relevant software and AV contractors appointed for this project. Namely, the appointed hardware contractors are responsible to arrange the acquisition of assets, to test all final versions and signed off AV content procured for this project, by 10 September 2021 to ensure a successful and smooth installation of AV software content onto the gallery.

Wondrous Place is a permanent gallery within the Museum of Liverpool. The gallery is undergoing a major refurbishment to enhance the visitor experience through engaging and immersive content.
The gallery is an eclectic mix of Liverpool’s rich history and modern contribution to the worlds of Sport, Music, Performance and the Arts. With an over-arching theme of ‘creative expression’, the gallery explores varied subjects such as football and music and examines the passion they generate within the hearts and souls of the people of Merseyside.

Through the objects, digital content and design, we hope to deliver an exciting and innovative gallery, animating our collections and contextualising them within the creative hub that is Liverpool. Overall, we want to provide an atmospheric, engaging and memorable experience for visitors.

The gallery’s key messages, which will be communicated through the gallery interpretation are as follows:

• An extraordinary number of creative people have come from the city and this has contributed to Liverpool’s strong global identity.
• Liverpool’s history and identity are expressed through its creative output.
• Football and music are particularly important forms of creative expression in the city.
• Protest, activism, and subversion have manifested creatively in the city to give the disempowered a voice to criticise and challenge authority.
• Many of Liverpool’s creative role models have their roots in our diverse and often under-represented communities.

The key/core audiences we hope to engage with are as follows:

• Families from Merseyside and the wider North-West region
• 16 to 24-year-olds
• Over 65s
• Tourists to Liverpool (including oversea tourists)
• Programmed school visits.
