Making Space

Exploring the links between astronomy and the creative arts.


Galway, a city on the western Irish coast, has a tradition of innovation and creative thinking stretching over a thousand years. Making Space, led by the National University of Ireland Galway, will capitalise on the vibrant arts and culture scene in the city. The project will broaden and deepen this culture, by celebrating the breadth of astronomy: weaving it into public installations, music, a creative events programme, and engagement with diverse communities across the region, with an impact that will stretch beyond 2020.
