Space is not just a technological endeavour! As an entirely new domain for human experience, all aspects of humanity will be engaged by space and its exploration: Philosophy, History, Economy, Law, and of course, Art. That is why at SG[France]2021 we wish for you to tell us what Space means to you. Does the thought of the great expanse outside our little blue dot of a planet fill you with awe? Inspiration? Dread? Or perhaps you’re excited about how space technologies change our lives on Earth? Whatever it is, we want you to show us.
We are launching a Call for Poster! The subject is “Space and…” where it relates to any topic you can think of. Send us your best ideas of original collaboration with space (disruptive ideas of domains like food, music, video games, sports, etc.) and illustrate it through visual arts. The Posters will be displayed through posters at the posters exhibition of SG[France]2021 on the 3rd of July, and on the website of SG[France]2021 as well.
The first satellite launched into space in 1957 was nothing more than a tin can sending beeps. How far have we stepped since then! Satellites, rockets, probes and stations have fundamentally changed the way we live, work and explore. From Earth orbits to outer space, through the moon and Mars, this year’s SG[France]2021 will be your opportunity to discuss what Space brings to our planet, our industry and our research and how that will evolve in the coming years. We will discuss the impact of space tech on climate change, a more sustainable world, the future of the ISS and space stations, and the ways non-space actors can engage with lunar exploration.
