So the DIY spacecraft control that happens roughly one Saturday per month has been extended into a full festival - the Galactic Fête! Headlined by our 2 spacecraft learning FREE event, we've decided to extend the weekend to more friends, family and more creative people with a relaxed, summer festival spirit. Thanks to Create Space London for being extremely supportive and receptive to this massive extension to the original plan of the 2 spacecraft learning events - not only that we get to use the usual venue at Wembley Point, we are also getting to have a star party and crash over in their new building nearer to Wembley Park and a lot of exciting makerspace workshop from Create Space London's in house experts too!
So what is it?
It's started unconventionally and it is going to be an otherworldly fête! Galactic Fête is the first summer festival celebrating the mix of space, art and maker culture. It's all about creativity! 18/19 July LONDON. It is a bit short noticed but let's face it, there's never a perfect time to do things in life, so we cracked on. We hope you will take the action too and come and enjoy a day or two at the weekend festival.
The common thing about space, art and maker culture is inspiration. Who doesn't want to have some inspiration in a relaxed, merry, summer weekend?!
With inspiration comes creativity. Ever had the trouble of not knowing where to start implementing with your new idea or think that you are not in a place to do so? Creation, needs skills, at least a rough idea of. Here's where the maker culture helps - with its focus on using and learning practical skills and applying them. Now, that sounds like hard work, too much hard work for the weekend, at least.
Or is it?
At Galactic Fête, we will break it down and provide that a gentle starting point to creativity by giving you a variety of experiences in bite-sized hands-on workshops, smoothed by the refreshments and games. There will be a spectrum of activities ranging from getting yourself transformed into a space cat on portrait, to screen-printing, laser cutting your own space themed masterpiece, to hands on learning to build spacecrafts. We have something for you regardless of where you are on your journey. On Saturday evening, we'll have a star party - where you can observe the sky, top up with more food and enjoy one of the many crafty things of the weekend: craft beer. All that, at an unbelievably affordable price.
You, your family (children too) and friends are invited to come relaxed and celebrate creativity in action, at this art/space merry. You are more creative than you think!
