WHAT

The Story of Space is not just a festival!

It’s a playground for unending learning, where interdisciplinary stories of space come alive. Artists, scientists, educators, and philosophers have stepped outside their worlds to create live experiences, installations, workshops, and talks on the physics, politics, perception, and philosophy of space. These will be accessible to the general public, across generations.
