Two Ecsite members are teaming up for this project announced beginning of July and planned to open in London (UK) in 2017: King's College London and Science Gallery

Science Gallery London is a new space, focused on 15–25 year olds, where art and science collide. A flagship project for Culture at King’s College London, it will engage over 250,000 visitors per year in cutting edge research in science, the arts and design, bringing together researchers, students, local communities and artists in new and innovative ways to stimulate fresh thinking. 

Science Gallery London will be part of the Global Science Gallery Network, Science Gallery's ambitious plan to build on the success of its original Dublin venue and open eight spaces by 2020 in partnership with leading universities. They will be located in major urban centres around the world: the third space for instance will be opening in Bengaluru, India, following an agreement with the indian Government in 2014. 

Once active, Science Gallery London will create two touring exhibitions per year on universal themes and featuring emerging ideas from science, technology, arts and design, building on a strong touring networks developed by Science Gallery since 2007.

With a prime location on the Guy’s Campus, Science Gallery London will include 2,000m² of public space alongside a restored Georgian courtyard, at the heart of the vibrant and rapidly developing London Bridge area. Science Gallery London is running pre-opening seasons in local pop up spaces in the lead up to the opening of its permanent home. Their new season, FED UP: The Future of Food, takes a look at our relationship with food and food production.
