Part of the acclaimed Global Science Gallery Network, and embedded in the University of Melbourne, the Science Gallery Melbourne (SGM) will be a gallery that engages 15-25 years olds at the intersection of art and science.
SGM is running a series of pop-up seasons in the lead up to the opening of their new home at a new innovation precinct; BLOOD was the inaugural season in 2017.
I assisted with the development and delivery of the art-science exhibition, curated by Head of Programs Ryan Jefferies, which showcased works that explored various sub-themes. This involved developing and managing collaborations with diverse stakeholders (from artists to scientists, cultural institutions to research laboratories) so that they worked effectively to deliver compelling outcomes.
I developed and delivered the public programme that accompanied the exhibition. The aim of the programming was twofold; to engage young adults aged 15-25 in curious conversations, and to raise brand awareness for current and future seasons. Using my expert knowledge, and through research into best practice and cultural engagement, I developed a content strategy and season-specific narratives that provided opportunities to initiate such conversations.
