Find out more about this new collective below…

Galway Design Hub was set up to promote and support collaboration, enterprise and social responsibility within the field of design.

The main objectives of the group are to;

– explore and examine the role of design in culture.
– collaborate with other groups inside and outside the field of design in exhibitions, events and projects.
– highlight the importance of ecological sustainability in design
– develop methods of increasing personal and societal wellbeing through design.
– promote the work of our members.
– give advice and guidance to new designers.

Galway Design Hub’s activities are mostly based online, digital connections, but now their first exhibition brings its’ members into physical space. Work on show for What Now? will include;

Off-Beat Photography (Patrizio Mancuso) who’s work for this will be photo stills from NUIG’s biomedical department.
Blochaus (Diarmuid Russel) exhibiting new illustrations.
– Wild Irish Drums (Daithi Dubh) who will exhibit highly finished single drums made from natural materials.
– Pallet furniture by Simon Kennedy.
– Planting from Rory Newell (Forest Moon), with preview of his entry into next year’s Bloom festival.
– Bilingual screenprints from Dublin based guests Siún Ní Dhuinn and Gillian Henderson (As An Nua).
– Bilingual slate signage provided by Peter McManus, with words/typography by Bernard McGlinchey (Freeflow Creativity).
– Demo stand of Hstry. Experience the rich history of Galway with this new, expert-driven tour guide app.

We’ve also been busy with an exercise in social branding which will be on show. 3 new logos for local, socially-minded groups who we’re ready for a visual identity; Cosáin (community wellness), Friends of Merlin Woods (woodland protection) and Ragairí (local performance troupe).

Last but certainly not least is our 20x20x20 social outreach collaboration with some of the children of Scoil Chroí Íosa (The Pres Primary School) on the theme of “Be Happy:)”. 20 paintings (20cmx20cm) by the school kids will be on display.

80% of sales of design work will go to the designers, 20% goes to An Áit Eile for event costs and for future events.
