At the vanguard of the STEM to STEAM movement, Science Gallery is the world’s first university-linked network dedicated to public engagement with science and art. Our mission is to ignite creativity and discovery where science and art collide.
Through our galleries and touring exhibitions we have reached millions of 15-25 year olds worldwide.
Our transdisciplinary programmes feature emerging research and ideas from the worlds of art, science, design and technology, presented in connective, participative, and surprising ways.

THE SCIENCE GALLERY TIMELINE
Then: A simple, transformative idea – the first Science Gallery opens at Trinity College Dublin, in 2008. Taking STEM to STEAM, it is a place to pioneer creative collisions between art and science.
Today: The Global Science Gallery Network now has six members across four continents: Dublin, London, Melbourne, Bengaluru, Venice and now Detroit. More than 1,200 scientists, artists and researchers have presented groundbreaking work through our exhibitions and events. We have toured exhibitions all over the world. We’ve had over 2.5 million visitors in Dublin and reached a further 500,000 worldwide.
Tomorrow: Young people anywhere – from urban centres to remote villages can connect to inspiring new ideas and develop their creativity through Science Gallery, whether through our galleries, travelling exhibitions, Labs or digital platforms.
COMING IN 2017: SCIENCE GALLERY LABS
Almost 90% of 15-25 year olds live in developing countries, where there are complex socio-economic, cultural, and institutional boundaries to participating in science and the arts. Our new Science Gallery Labs will be locally led, agile, engagement programmes allowing us to share Science Gallery more widely, without the intensive resource requirements of a formal Gallery.
