WE'RE OFF TO DAVOS AGAIN IN JANUARY

At Science Gallery International, we believe that young people hold the creative potential to tackle the world's biggest problems.

That's why we're partnering with the World Economic Forum again at their Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland in 2018, to engage world leaders about empowering the next generation to manage the challenges ahead – creativity is becoming a key skill that young people will need to prosper in the future.

Our Executive Director Andrea Bandelli will be present as one of the Forum’s Cultural Leaders, meeting around the theme of “Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World”. We have also collaborated with WEF to produce an exhibition called PORTALS, consisting of four immersive digital gateways that reclaim technology towards creating more meaningful human exchange.

It's hard to believe, but Science Gallery Dublin first opened its doors nearly ten years ago. In February 2018 the first gallery in the Global Science Gallery Network will have been open for a decade, and they have lots planned to celebrate. Stay tuned for more on that, and in the meantime, check out their 2018 programme, announced in December: FAKE, LIFE AT THE EDGES, and INTIMACY.
SCIENCE GALLERY LONDON OPENS TO THE PUBLIC

In incredibly exciting news, Science Gallery at King's College London will open at the foot of The Shard in June of 2018. After years of construction, the building is nearly ready to go, with galleries, meeting spaces, a café, shop and courtyard all part of the newest Science Gallery. Director Daniel Glaser gives great insight into the new space where art, science and health collide to drive innovation at the heart of London in this video.

The team there are busy gearing up for launch, with HOOKED being the first show to grace the brand new gallery spaces. You can keep an eye on what's happening at Science Gallery London over on their website.

Science Gallery London even made it onto "The best new places to visit in 2018 according to Lonely Planet" alongside Science Gallery Lab Detroit.

SCIENCE GALLERY LAB DETROIT PROGRAMS ITS FIRST EXHIBITION

Science Gallery Lab Detroit at Michigan State University will launch exhibits in summer 2018 with help from a $1 million grant from MSU Federal Credit Union.

Their first exhibition, called HUSTLE, explores what it means to work hard or get worked over – and what psychology, sociology, biology, criminology, behavioral economics, technology, and other domains tell us about hustling and being hustled.

MSU's Associate Provost for Teaching, Learning, and Technology Jeff Grabill discussed the goals and plans for Science Gallery Lab Detroit with Michigan Radio; click here to listen and learn more about how their story began.
