CBK Rotterdam involved with Science Gallery Rotterdam
CBK Rotterdam is committed to the Science Gallery Rotterdam, and will form part of the advisory and program council for this new exhibition space. The Science Gallery Rotterdam is based on the Science Gallery model at Trinity College in Dublin. New forms of collaboration between scientists and visual artists are being organized and shown, and innovative education programs will be developed to communicate about science and care.
The Science Gallery concept has proven itself at locations elsewhere in the world in the past ten years as a way of involving social partners in the discussion about scientific research. The program focuses primarily on young people between the ages of 15 and 25. Several universities have already opened Science Galleries in Dublin, London, Venice, Bangalore, Detroit and Melbourne. The Science Galleries work together in the Science Gallery International network, which has been run by the World Economic Forum in recent years
invited as a discussion partner about the consequences of developments in science and technology for society.
Science Gallery Rotterdam works further together with Erasmus University Rotterdam and Museum Rotterdam.
