Don’t leave too soon – join us for drinks, snacks & space chitchats!
ABOUT MOON GALLERY AIR PROGRAM
The Essence of Home is a space art residency programme developed by the Moon Gallery Foundation to offer a unique platform for artists and curators who fled from Ukraine. The art residency provides a part-time program for research, experimentation, and creative advancement, while in parallel dedicating space and time for the residents to integrate into the Dutch socio-cultural scene. During the residency, artists engage in stimulating activities such as lectures, workshops, and other opportunities provided by partnering institutions to inform and inspire their creative process and eventually, develop an artwork to be sent to the Moon as a part of our upcoming payload scheduled to launch in 2025.
Netherlands Space Society is a vibrant community that connects space enthusiasts and professionals, and takes the Netherlands closer to space. In 2021, they celebrated their 70th anniversary. As part of the celebrations, a Space Art Competition was organised with the aim to inspire and inform Dutch communities on the topic of space through art.
