Survey for Short Planetarium Shows on Cultural Astronomy
We would like to invite you to help inform how a group of storytelling and planetarium specialists develop cultural astronomy shorts that share stories from Canada, China, India, Japan, and the U.S. With the end in mind (shorts you will want to have for your planetarium!), we wanted to ask you some questions.
Background
The ʻImiloa Astronomy Center located in Hawai’i, has been collaborating with planetarium and storytelling specialists from Canada, China, Japan, India, and the U.S. to develop cultural astronomy shorts. This is an exciting effort that honors ʻImiloa’s meaning and purpose “to seek far” in the ongoing quest for new knowledge. As many of you know, at the ʻImiloa Astronomy Center, we seek to explore our place in the genealogy of the universe and continually seek, learn, and adapt to an ever evolving environment that inspires discovery and innovation.

In collaboration with a handful of experts from around the world, we are developing compelling stories that will become planetarium shorts in 2020–21. We have a bold vision of wanting to build community across the TMT partner countries of India, China, Canada, Japan, and the U.S. These planetarium shorts will be shared with the planetarium community worldwide.
