Science Gallery Melbourne

Science Gallery Melbourne is a dynamic new venue for engaging 15-25 year olds with arts and science. Part of the acclaimed International network with eight nodes worldwide, and embedded in the University of Melbourne, Science Gallery Melbourne will open in 2020. Science Gallery started in Dublin with the idea of becoming the world’s leading organisation for involving, inspiring and transforming curious minds through science. Each Science Gallery shares a common mission: to ignite creativity and discovery where science and art collide. In the years prior to opening, Science Gallery Melbourne will host themed programs of exhibitions, events, talks, podcasts and workshops in a range of pop-up locations. Science Gallery Melbourne’s exhibition for 2019 is DISPOSABLE. The lid has been lifted on human wastefulness, but what next? Science Gallery Melbourne will highlight experimental and creative ways to tackle our ever-growing excess of waste through transdisciplinary and collaborative practices in its third pop-up program.
