#thestoryofspace

We get too few opportunities to contemplate our space in the universe as well as the space of the universe in us. The Story of Space was an interdisciplinary learning festival, which allowed us to do just that. Between the 10th and 19th of November 2017, we turned Panjim city in Goa, India, into a learning playground with live experiences, immersive installations, workshops, talks, films, and panels on questions around space from multiple perspectives. We engaged researchers, artists, and educators from around the globe—eighteen countries including India—to tell stories that expand our being and becoming. It was experienced by 5000 students, youth, adults, and elderly and was FREE to attend for all.

The thing that I liked the most was the first exhibition at the Goa Science Center ‘ Sounds of the Spectrum’, which was about the elements and their own sound and vibration. I found it very interesting and exciting about the new discoveries.
It was amazing!

Our biggest ‘aha’-moment’ is definitely ‘Who does the sea belongs to’. Never thought about where my waste is going after I throw it away! For sure we are gonna use more cloth bags and use less plastic. The world is our space where we live in, we have to take care of that.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
