As part of an intergalactic coalition, a well-meaning space alien volunteers to bring a message of self-actualization and harmony with nature to the one planet rejected by all her peers as incorrigible–Earth. This family-oriented French sci-fi comedy chronicles her adventures on the chaotic planet. Mila is 150 years old and has five children; encoded in her brain are two telepathic programs designed to restructure the thinking of destructive humans.

091 Labs will be taking part in it’s second Galway Culture Night this Friday the 21st of September, from 6pm till late!
During Culture Night each year, cultural organisations across the country open their doors to the public for a night of free events, showcasing work, talks and performances.
Last year’s Culture Night was a lot of fun and we had a great response from visitors. This year we’ll be showing some of the projects our members have been working on, electronics workshops, arcade games and interactive pieces as well as board games from Galway’s Board Games Club and an exhibition of art and crafts from the talented folks in the local Galway Pub Scrawl group.
There are a ton of great events happening on the night so get out there and see what Galway’s thriving Arts community has to offer!
Many people ask us what the best thing is about having a makerspace in Galway city. Without even a blip of hesitation, our answer is always the thriving and exciting arts community. We’re excited to share with you a mobile gaming app from our friends at Galway Loves Theatre. It’s called G Loves T, and it looks a little bit special.
According to the website, “It’s part treasure hunt, part code-breaking, part puzzle-solving. It will be played online and around Galway from July 4th – 23rd.” The game involves collecting clues hidden on websites, forums and around Galway City, combining some of the latest (some might even say bizarre) trends in social networking, like geocaching and QR codes. A good old fashioned treasure hunt brought to the virtual world? I’m in!
The game is launching right in time for Galway Arts Festival 2011, so go on over to Galway Loves Theatre’s website and sign yourself up!
