OCTOBER – NOVEMBER 2017
The Story of Space explores space and its connections to science, philosophy, art and culture to create inspiration, dialogue and spontaneous learning experiences through a free, public festival. Curated through conversations and an open call, the festival will bring together researchers of science & philosophy, artists & designers, writers & poets, musicians, cultural practitioners, coders, and educators in a month long calendar of events in Goa, India.
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.
– Viktor E. Frankl
The notion of space is synonymous with existence. The past is seemingly without a beginning. The future brims with possibility. How do we, the human, contextualise ourselves within this fragment, this instance of space and time. Be it through science, philosophy, art, or culture, the lens through which space is seen and experienced forms an integral part of making sense of the world within and around us.
