2016 Highlights from the Global Science Gallery Network

SCIENCE GALLERY INTERNATIONAL AT THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM IN DAVOS
Following a year of global chaos and change, we are looking forward to highlighting the potential of young people’s creativity to overcome the challenges that lie ahead at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January.

Our Executive Director Andrea Bandelli has been invited to join the WEF as a Cultural Leader. We’re also curating an installation at The Loft, the studio area of the World Economic Forum, and hosting daily debates.

The installation will feature artist Patrick Tresset’s theatrical portrait sketching robots ‘3 Robots Named Paul’ and ‘Peeping hole’ by Kenichi Okada and Naoaki Fujimoto, both featured in SEEING. Read more about the summit here.

COMING IN 2017: SCIENCE GALLERY LABS
Recognising that almost 90% of 15-25 year olds live in the Global South, we have created a new format: Science Gallery Labs. These will be locally led, agile, engagement programmes allowing us to share Science Gallery more widely, without the intensive resource requirements of a formal Gallery.

Stay tuned for updates in 2017.
