Inside the new Science Gallery that explores mental health

Director Rose Hiscock recently gave ArtsHub a preview of Melbourne’s newest gallery, a place where science and art collide with an opening exhibition that has an inclusive take on mental health.

In June, Science Gallery Melbourne will open, part of the internationally acclaimed Science Gallery Network. It represents a gateway into the University of Melbourne’s new Melbourne Connect innovation precinct.

The gallery has been designed to inspire young adults through art, science and innovation. As Creative Director Dr Ryan Jeffries describes, ‘It’s a creative laboratory … and problem solving is at the heart of that’.
