John Curtin College of the Arts Connections To The Cosmos 2022

The night sky has been a source of wonder that has inspired humans for centuries in myriad ways. It has inspired us culturally, spiritually and scientifically, and we each connect to it in different ways.

In partnership with the Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory, Curtin University and the Maritime Museum, John Curtin College of the Arts is hosting a FREE Astronomy night for its school community (i.e. students and their families). If you are interested in the night sky and how we connect to it, come and explore all things astronomical with us! Whether it is gaining first-hand information from WA’s leading astronomers in both Western and Indigenous Astronomy, telescopes, celestially influenced dances and music performances, touring through the universe in time and space, there are many avenues of knowledge to explore related to the fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

6:00pm to 8:30pm

Events begin at 6:00pm with activities in and around Curtin Theatre. This will be followed by an astrological inspired dance performance as well as a lecture by Gingin Observatory astronomer Richard Tonello followed by telescope viewings by until 8:30 pm.

Booking is essential as numbers are limited.
