*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*: 19 September 2016

*Science Meets Art, Culture, and Philosophy Once Again in Goa with The
Story of Space 2017*

*19 September 2016, Goa – *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 (CFP) for its second
learning festival, The Story of Space, slated to take place in Goa in
October/November 2017.

The free public festival will explore ‘Space’ and its connections to
science, philosophy, art, and culture. The project will bring researchers
of science & philosophy, artists & designers, writers & poets, musicians,
coders, cultural practitioners, and educators on a common platform to
create spontaneous and cultivated learning experiences on the subject of
‘Space’ from various disciplines and perspectives. The program will include
public installations, performances, films, workshops, talks & panel
discussions in a month long calendar of events in Goa, India.

The festival is hosted in partnership with The Corporation of the City of
Panjim. The festival will be free for all to attend and expects 50,000
visitors including inquirers from cities of India, local Goan 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 call invites imaginative, well-conceptualized, bold and thorough
proposals (both institutional and individual) from India and
internationally for the festival. The last date for sending the proposals
is 15 December 2016, and early birds benefit from dialogue and feedback.
