Sponsorship deal lights up TWAM venues

06 October 2017


Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums is delighted to announce it has secured a one-year sponsorship package with Projected Image UK Ltd, commencing early October 2017. Projected Image, established in 1999 and based in central Newcastle, is the UK and Europe’s premier manufacturing company of gobos, images that are projected onto walls, ceilings or floors, as well as externally onto buildings and structures. Gobos can be used in many ways in the museum and gallery environment: to direct people around the latest exhibition space as text signage, to highlight areas of interest or to create stunning ambiences for events are just a few examples. Projected Image has already worked with organisations in the arts and cultural sector such as The Tate Gallery, Tate Modern and Sage Gateshead. A highlight of The Late Shows 2017, Newcastle/Gateshead’s annual late-night culture crawl, was the projection of a light and sound installation onto the Dunston Staiths.

Iain Watson, Director of Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, said:

We are grateful to Projected Image for their sponsorship and look forward to working with them on projects throughout the coming year. As industry leaders, they will be bringing a wealth of knowledge and creativity to provide innovative and high quality projections that will enhance the visitor experience in our venues.

Roger Scott, Director of Projected Image, said:

We are delighted to be involved with and sponsoring Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums (TWAM). Not only do their venues provide brilliant locations to host anything from weddings to corporate events, but supporting the arts is in line with our company policy and ethics. As well as a monetary donation, we will be providing gobos for illuminating a wide range of upcoming exhibitions and openings, shining a light on the North East and its innovative cultural programme.
