Tour de Moon is a cosmic adventure, a large-scale public festival of immersive experiences and live events developed in collaboration with our “universal satellite”: the Moon, seen as a character, a landscape and a prompt for radical imagination. The festival, composed of 8 programming strands, aims to reach millions of visitors across the UK and the world in 2022, through live and virtual experiences, supporting youth, nightlife creators, scientists and digital creators through cooperation. VibeLab’s Mirik Milan is supporting the project as a board member and advisor.
Tour de Moon is all about collaboration between scientists and nightlife creators so as to prompt radical imagination and new beginnings. Through their Bursary Scheme, Tour de Moon are committing to redistribute wealth – with funds they have received from their grant – whilst offering to empower others to create, to initiate and to innovate with new thinking and pluralistic practices so that history does not repeat itself on and beyond Earth.
Tour de Moon are offering over 850 bursaries to any nightlife artist, performer, scientist, digital maker, makers of new worlds, playwright, or creative – professional or amateur – to collaborate with the moon in unique ways.
With bursaries ranging from £100 to £25,000 there are a range of opportunities to push your practice and have your work showcased in Tour de Moon (and to the Moon!). Whether you want to write, sing, speak or create, there is bound to be something for you to do during Tour de Moon. We also have secured collaborations with the SETI (Seach For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute Artists In Residence (AIR) Program, NASA SSERVI (Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute), the African Astronomical Society, The Ghanean Planetarium, NightTime Industries Association, and many other international institutions and youths clubs alongside the bursaries to support the development of global cooperative efforts beyond borders.
@Nelly Ben Hayoun will be live on Twitch between 1pm and 2pm BST explaining what Tour de Moon is, what the programming strands are and explaining some of the ways in which we are collaborating with the Moon: Moon Bouncing, communicating with the moon, etc.
