Media release:

Shetland Arts are looking for a web development company to help them build the online presence for Mareel, Shetland’s music, cinema and creative industries venue currently under construction on Lerwick’s waterfront.

Gwilym Gibbons, Director of Shetland Arts said: “As the physical presence of Mareel takes shape on Lerwick’s waterfront Shetland Arts is now looking to build Mareel’s virtual presence in the form of a dynamic website that will not only provide information on events taking place in the venue but will enable customers to buy tickets and for promoters to check availability of the venue for functions and make provisional bookings”.

At this time the  Arts Development Agency is seeking expressions of interest from developers with experience in incorporating social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, together with online Box Office software for ticket sales, into the venue’s website.

Gwilym Gibbons added: “Mareel will be producing a wealth of multi media content are we’re keen to allow people to access information from wherever they are, whether via a computer, mobile phone or any other device”.

Interested parties should send their contact details and a brief description of the company & approach to by the 6th of Dec, 2010. See Shetland Arts Opportunities for more info.

Mareel is due to open next spring and the venue is already taking bookings from July 2011 onwards. A busy programme is taking shape for the summer. Those interested in booking Mareel should contact Richard Wemyss on 01595 743843 or email
