From Tuesday 16th Oct, the Science Gallery, Dublin are running a 9-week free course for adults interested in developing ideas, solutions and interventions for the city.
Drawing on Science Gallery’s flagship 2012 exhibition HACK THE CITY, this Idea Lab will introduce participants to ideas around hacking, city interventions and services trends which are influencing how we live in cities today and how we will live in them in the future. Led by HACK THE CITY curator Teresa Dillon, sessions will follow a mix of formal lectures, invited guests, open discussions and practical hands-on idea generation. Practical sessions will focus on group-based idea generation and collaboration. Over the 8 weeks participants will also learn a variety of ‘design thinking’ skills, which will enable them to work on developing a prototype project.
Deadline for sign-in is: Friday 12th Oct, 2012.
Course starts Tuesday, 16th Oct and finishes Tue 11th Dec, 2012. Classes will be run every Tuesday evening from the 16 October from 6pm until 8pm, upstairs in Studios 1 & 2 in Science Gallery, Pearse St, Dublin 1.
