India’s first science meets art festival The Story of Light captivated over 15,000 visitors in Goa last year. ‘The Story Of’ Foundation has issued a call for proposals for its second learning festival, The Story of Space, which will take place in October/November 2017.
The program will include public installations, performances, films, workshops, talks & panel discussions in a month long calendar of events in Goa, India. The festival will be free for all to attend and expects 50,000 visitors including inquirers from cities of India, local families, school and college students, and tourists from near and far.
The overall goals of the festival are to promote a public understanding of current science; to create a network and platform for science, philosophy, art, and culture to meet through cross- and inter-disciplinary stories; and to promote the sensibility to patterns that connect.
The project invites participation from researchers of science & philosophy, artists & designers, writers & poets, musicians, coders, cultural practitioners, and educators. So please do share it widely among your networks. The last date for sending the proposals is 15 December 2016, and early birds benefit from dialogue and feedback.
