Ars Electronica has a long history of working with space related content and narratives. The EU project spaceEU allowed them to open new collaborations on a European level. Together with eleven organizations, Ars Electronica developed and produced a wide range of space engagement activities addressing youth, families and teachers.
Within spaceEU, the universe is the source for inspiration – unlimited and endless. It allows youth to imagine their own universe and that contains great potential for learning. Through on-site workshops, the Step into Space online exhibition and a print at home version, various levels of engagement and interaction are possible.
The spaceEU partners are also present in the Ars Electronica Gardens and offer even more activities and events. Artistic contributions allow visitors, youth and adults alike, to enter new spheres and dimensions. Check out our Space Garden programme and find out more about how space research is relevant to daily life and how Earth observation can help us protect nature.
