In 2008, a car park in a forgotten corner of Dublin was transformed into a living experiment that would bridge art and science, unleashing their combined creative potential. A groundbreaking initiative pioneered by Trinity College Dublin, Science Gallery is a new kind of space where art and science collide – a porous membrane between the university and the city.
Since opening in 2008, over 1.3 million visitors to Science Gallery have experienced over 26 unique exhibitions – ranging from living art experiments to materials science and from the future of the human race to the future of play. Primarily oriented towards young adults between the ages of 15 and 25 years old, Science Gallery develops an ever-changing programme of exhibitions, events and experiences fuelled by the expertise of scientists, researchers, students, artists, designers, inventors, creative thinkers and entrepreneurs. Science Gallery focuses on providing programmes and experiences that allow visitors to participate and facilitate social connections, always providing an element of surprise.
