Open Call 2021

Space armies, banks in space, tax collection, “space routes” struggles to appropriate and divide the moon, competition to go further and conquer new territories; the construction of a space constitution is being needed to be able to legislate the use of outer space. This is what we are building up there, unbeknown to most of us below. 

 

 From Idea Planeta and through the Space Arts Platform, we want to open our own door and instead, flood the outer space with art, with young voices creating for the common good.
