So what better day to launch the first two events of our summer season of lunar delights? Starting on Sunday January 20th and over the next six months, we will unveil a new Moon Festival event on each full Moon. Tickets are likely to go VERY fast so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
THE EVENTS: WHAT TO EXPECT ON SUNDAY 20 JANUARY 2019
MAVERICK WOMEN & THE MOON
Throughout history and all across the world, there have always been women who lived at the edge of society. And while they were at it, many have looked at the moon as a source of courage and inspiration. On July 20th you will meet many of them, spanning five continents. From 15th century European Moon Goddesses all the way to Chinese lunar environmentalists via Mauritian herbalism and NASA’s mathematicians, prepare to be enchanted by the magic of the Moon in a multi disciplinary and multi sensory feminine lunar delight. Please note: tickets for this event are limited and likely to go very very fast. Grab yours quickly.
DO WE HAVE A RIGHT TO THE MOON?
Do we, as humans, have a right to put up flags on the Moon? Is exploring the boundaries of the universe as important to contemporary space missions as gathering data is? What could be lost by stripping the Moon of its mystery? Please note: tickets for this event are limited and likely to go very very fast. Grab yours quickly.
