Amazing Space Exhibition

July 2019 marked 50 years since man first set foot on the moon and The Word, National Centre for the Written Word, South Shields, celebrated this momentous event with the launch of Amazing Space.

We were tasked with creating an immersive experience that takes visitors on a journey from planet Earth through the solar system and beyond. From retracing the footsteps of the first ever lunar astronauts to discovering how space travel has influenced everything from books and magazines to films and science fiction.

Sheridan Design were responsible for the curation, design, build and installation of the exhibition. As well as research and design, our talented team produced the large lunar module, hanging planets, interactives and digital games on display.

Tania Robinson, Head of Culture at The Word, National Centre for the Written Word, said the exhibition will offer “a fun and fascinating insight into everything we know – and imagine – about outer space.”
