WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS FESTIVAL

WHY THE STORY OF SPACE
We get too few opportunities in our youth to contemplate our space in the universe as well as the space of the universe in us. The Story of Space provides us with a chance to do this, and from a number of perspectives.

By transforming our ways of knowing, learning, valuing and acting together, we have the opportunity to face the complex, interdependent challenges of our time. Through open, accessible, and lifelong learning projects, we foster multi-perspective thinking, mindful inquiry into the known and unknown, and the sensibility to complexity—all critical skills for the 21st century.

 

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Story of Space is a free, public festival of discovery and inquiry. Between the 10th and 19th of November 2017, we turn Panjim city into a learning playground with live experiences, immersive installations, workshops, talks, films, and panels on questions around space from multiple perspectives. We have engaged researchers, artists, and educators to create works with general or specific learning outcomes for audiences that they would not normally engage with. The festival presents and evaluates about 80 interesting projects from around the world and India.
WHY SPACE
Space can be understood from a number of perspectives. These include but are not confined to the political concerns of space regarding ownership, boundaries and migration; philosophical questions about space, regarding emptiness, tolerance and protest; space in terms of physics: interplanetary travel, stellar birth and quantum theories and lastly, our experience of space via our perception of it, both psychologically and via our senses.
WHO ARE THE PARTICIPANTS
Our team works with a group of participants– artists, scientists, cultural practitioners, educators, social scientists, and philosophers, in order to bring out those hidden but relevant stories of space. The festival is designed to be open and inclusive, spread across public spaces in Panjim city, acting as a bridge between a diverse public audience, the team and the participants. Our platform is volunteer-run and community-led; a fertile ground for conversations and interactions, sowing the seeds for present and future collaborations.
