“Hack The City” – Open Call For Proposals

Closing Date: Friday 20th January

The Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin is seeking proposals for a major exhibition and series of events entitled Hack The City that is due to take place this Summer in Dublin. This is Science Gallery’s flagship exhibition for 2012 and it aims to “rethink our cities from the ground up through the spirit and philosophy of the hacker ethos – to bend, mash-up, tweak and cannibalise our city systems, to create possibilities, illustrate visionary thinking and demonstrate real-world examples for sustainable urban futures”. The aim of the show is to “ask how we can make the city work better for us, and feature a mix of hackers, makers, doers, data nerds, hobbyists,artists, scientists, tech geeks, activists, engineers and DIY urban planners”.

They are looking for a variety of different types of submissions including installations, experiments, events and performances. The closing date for submissions is Friday January 20th and there is funding available for approved applications. Full information can be found here.
