Time to space out.
The National Space Centre near Midleton will be opening its doors to the public next week, as it hosts an exhibition on ‘space waste.’
The centre, which is usually closed to the public, will be hosting the exhibition as well as tours of the NSC campus between December 3rd-5th. You can register (free) for tickets here.
“The National Space Centre (NSC) in partnership with Greywood Arts will be hosting an exhibition by Swedish sculpture and sound artist Nicklas Lundberg, from Friday 03 December through Sunday 05 December.
“Lundberg is the Artist in Residence at Greywood, examining waste produced by the acceleration of space technology as part of Ireland’s first Space Waste residency. The residency is supported by the Cork County Council Arts Office.”
The work of 110 students will also be showcased as part of an exhibition titled Hello Future World, led by artist Scott Gorham. The resulting collaborative works of students from Gaelscoil Mhainistir Na Corann, Kyle NS, St. Fergal’s NS, and the Greywood Arts Youth Group will be on display.
With Covid cases still high, the centre has specified the safety measures being taken: “Entry is by timed ticketing only. Exhibition space is operating at under 20% capacity and is ventilated. Masks must be worn indoors by all visitors 13 and over and visitors are asked to observe social distances.”
