Hack The City Preview Party

Get the first sneak peak of HACK THE CITY at our special preview party, exclusively for Science Gallery MEMBERS+.

HACK THE CITY will be city-wide summer programme that will call for citizens of Dublin to join leading artists, designers and scientists to retake control of the city. It will ask how we can tweak, modify, adapt and hack the city to create a more responsive environment that is a better place for us all to live. It will explore how can we strengthen the social bonds of the city, reintroduce a craft approach to material needs and reinvigorate disused space.

HACK THE CITY opens to the public at 12 noon on Friday June 22nd. However, on Thursday June 21st, we will hold a special HACK THE CITY Preview Party for Science Gallery MEMBERS+

Kicking off at 7pm in Science Gallery (with DJs playing music until 11:00pm), this is your chance to see HACK THE CITY before anyone else. One of the highlights of the event will be an aftr-dark performance of Electronic Countermeasures, in which a flock of flying quad-copter drones will create a local file-sharing network outside Science Gallery, controlled by the audience below. 

The preview party is free and exclusive to Science Gallery MEMBERS+ and supporters. Not a member yet? Sign up here to get discounts, exclusive invites, and be part of a growing club of supporters where ideas collide.
