Can artificial intelligence really do your job better than you? What does an impossible instrument sound like? Should we be worried that the end of the world can be... entertaining?
In 2017, Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin will continue to create compelling experiences designed to provoke conversation, engaging with a wide-ranging community of individuals from different backgrounds, perspectives and expertise. This year, we are planning more activities to reach beyond our building and engage with audiences locally, nationally and globally. More than ever, we believe we need to demonstrate how the merging of art and science within cultural practice can provide a platform for conversation and greater understanding — and be a safe space to try on potential futures.
Some programme highlights include our growing Education and Learning programmes, connecting with young people across Ireland and bringing them to the gallery. We will also increase our commissioning of new work in 2017 — in particular, work by Irish artists — and we have plans to multiply MAKESHOP’s presence, making this exciting initiative more accessible. Join us, through our Open Calls and events and tell us what you think and what you’d like to see. We look forward to hearing from you over the next 12 months.
