Synesthesia Talks Launch: TANGIBLE
Tue 21 March 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
We are very excited to launch our brand new multidisciplinary talk series, 'Synesthesia', in collaboration with The Fumbally Exchange.
Our senses tell us about the world around us, and our talk series aims to investigate our senses through discussions about design, science and performance. Our first talk will be about our sense of touch, and all things tangible.
Our speakers will be a combination of designers from the Fumbally Exchange and entreprenerurs from the creative industries in Dublin.
