Press Release

Many governments and private companies plan in the coming years to venture to the moon for scientific purposes, resource exploration and long-term human habitation. We ask the question: can going to the moon reconcile Earth? 

The plan is to give the public a voice in the Moon/Earth relationship in context of Moon Village Association launching an ambitious project to send a camera to the moon for a live video stream for one day of the whole Earth; our home. 

A Public Forum on the Moon ‘MINI’ is a chance to discuss some of the deeper philosophical and ethical issues linked to any human lunar presence. Made more pertinent by the 'Overview Effect' being made available to the 

global community by the Moon Village Association.

Come and hear presentations by prominent space-thinkers & thinkers alike who are experts in their fields, followed by a public discussion convened by Annie Handmer

MPavilion February Theme

EARTH: A Place of Reconciliation, A Reconciliation of place

The proposal to live-stream ‘Whole Earth’, made freely available to the public, is a tangible contribution that can be made towards going to the Moon for the benefit of Earth. This builds on ‘Earthrise’, the iconic photograph taken by the Apollo 8 astronauts, which let humanity witness the whole Earth for the first time as it rose over the horizon of the moon.



Links to recordings:

On the 02nd March 2019, the Moon Village Association (MVA) Public Forum was held by Office of Other Spaces as the regional Australian Coordinator of MVA.


Conceived, organised and hosted by Office of Other Spaces, the event provided the opportunity to discuss topics to do with Environment, Mining, Medical and the Space Industry - specific to the moon.


Framed with a landscape tone - a rich dialogue was had between speakers, audience and the topics presented.
