Dublin’s annual festival of science and culture is taking place this July 23rd to 26th, following a sell-out success in 2014.
By day, Dublin’s city centre will be transformed into a curiosity-filled hub with free day-time adventures in science, play and curious technology and by night, expect interactive performances, shows, debates and events that will play host to some of the most curious scientific minds of our time from both Ireland and abroad, as the city comes alive in a curated programme of science, art, film, play and performance.
The Festival of Curiosity, which aims to ignite Dublin’s curious heart and encourage a world where everyone has the confidence, courage and opportunity to be curious, evolved from the Dublin City of Science 2012 – a year-long celebration of science, held in honour of Dublin winning the bid to host the Euroscience Open Forum in July 2012.
The programme will be announced in June and is guaranteed to be jam-packed with surprises and delights, guaranteed to inspire, challenge and intrigue even the most curious of minds.
An interactive science playground, named the Curiosity Carnival, will be located in the Smock Alley Theatre where hands-on adventure in science, play and curious technology will take place and is recommended for all ages, from 5 to infinity!
Highlights from last year’s festival included events with Dara O’Briain, Nobel Prize Winner Professor Bruce Beutler and National Geographic explorer, marine scientist and filmmaker, Dr. Tierney Thys.
