About Science Gallery Venice

Our Cities, Our Planet, Our Selves. Re-generation for Venice, Re-imagination for the world

Science Gallery Venice is part of the Global Science Gallery Network dedicated to supporting young people create better futures through experiencing how arts and sciences interconnect. What distinguishes us from the other Galleries, is that our focus will be on themes connected with our cultural heritage, the environment and what it is to be human in the digital age. Culture, ecology and humanity are all interconnected  and fundamental to our existence, by exploring them through the collision of art, science and technology at Science Gallery Venice we can create new ways of finding solutions as well as cultural expressions of these important global challenges.

Venice is a city which embodies these themes. Our city was the centre of the European renaissance, and we believe that it now can be the centre of a new renaissance focused on learning from the past, in the present, to create the future through the collision of arts, science and technology.
