Climate change scientist and artist, Gordon Bromley, has launched a truly special art exhibition on campus. ‘Art on the Edge’ features intricate drawings and paintings from Gordon’s fieldwork on the front line of climate change, including in Antarctica.

According to Gordon, “The world is stunning and if we don’t appreciate what we have to lose then we don’t know it’s going.” The exhibition gives personal insights into his research and the landscapes that inspire it.

This free exhibition is on display for a month in the Hardiman Building foyer near the entrance to the James Hardiman Library.

An exhibition of posters and objects celebrating the people who took part in the VOICES project.The Voices of Individuals: Collectively Exploring Self-determination (VOICES) project aimed to change the law in relation to the right to legal capacity for people with disabilities. The project was based at the Centre for Disability Law and Policy, NUI Galway under Dr. Eilionóir Flynn. The right to legal capacity in its most basic form is the right to make decisions which have legal consequences and to have those decisions respected by the law. This project took an innovative approach to legal capacity law reform by publishing the stories of those with lived experience of disability and pairing them with researchers, practitioners, front line workers in disability services and activists to develop grounded ideas for legal reform. The VOICES project placed participants from eleven countries and five different continents in pairs. Each of the pairs worked together to co-author a chapter of an edited collection entitled, ‘Global Perspectives on Legal Capacity Reform: Our Voices, Our Stories,’ which was published by Routledge in 2018. The exhibition will feature a poster and object celebrating each of the chapters in the edited collection,  their unique content and diverse experiences.
