Making Space: Artist residencies with Astronomers in 2019. NUI Galway Centre for Astronomy is coordinating Making Space as part of the Royal Astronomical Society’s bicentennial celebrations (RAS 200) in the lead up to and including 2020, with a number of community, science and arts projects in Galway City and County. July 2019 is also the 50th anniversary of the first person to walk on the moon. This is the only project in Ireland to join four others from the UK to have received RAS 200 awards.
Making Space is a multi-layered astronomy project that began this year and will culminate in creative events, collaborations and a celebration of astronomy and geophysics in 2019 and 2020. Residencies and collaborations between artists and scientists will take place in 2019, creating new research and artworks. Making Space is now inviting artists to apply for a two month residency where they will work with a scientist to create new research and artworks which will then be exhibited in July 2019.
