2.6K viewers have seen our OPTICKS/Echoes From the Moon Facebook Live. This program was conceived by Daniela de Paulis, Director of the AWB AstroArts Program. Daniela describes her work:

"Since starting my collaboration with Astronomers Without Borders in 2010, my work as an artist has changed, shifting from a mostly studio-based practice, to an interdisciplinary and global venture. My current work involves international collaborations with astronomers, radio astronomers, neuroscientists and people from all walks of life. It is amazing for me to help organize the art program for Global Astronomy Month and to present my project OPTICKS to a worldwide audience. Thanks to my collaboration with AWB, OPTICKS has developed into an international event, during which we send images to the Moon and back, submitted by our world wide community, turning each event into a unique experience.
This year OPTICKS was truly special: I invited playwright/director Ione to participate for a homage to her life partner and noted composer Pauline Oliveros. I have been long inspired by Oliveros's work and her experimental pioneering approach to sound and music." Read more.
