About

When you look at Earth from outer space, our differences of opinion can seem just a little less important. Get a different view with Our Place in Space.

Centred around an epic scale model of the solar system, Our Place In Space combines a 3D sculpture trail and an interactive AR app. The exhibition visited Derry~Londonderry, Belfast, Cambridge and Liverpool in 2022 and was experienced by over 300,000 people. It returns to Northern Ireland in February 2023. Free to visit and beginning in the grounds of the Ulster Transport Museum at Cultra, the trail will weave its way onto the North Down Coastal Path and stretch through Crawfordsburn Country Park before ending with Pluto at Bangor Pier. The trail will launch in late February, accompanied by an exciting events and learning programme for people of all ages. Stretching over 10km, the installation features scale models of the Sun and planets, recreated as contemporary art sculptures. Colourful arches house each planet with an arrow and the name of the planet lit up in Las Vegas style lights.

This is one final chance to wander around our giant mini solar system along the stunning locations of the North Down coastal path. Pluto in the park anyone? Saturn-on-sea?
