One Sky, Many Worlds: Indigenous Voices in Astronomy - For thousands of years, our keen observations of the world have led to knowledge and ways of knowing that contribute to our understanding of science and culture. This flexible, 600 sq. metre immersive and interactive exhibition will tell authentic and compelling stories from the perspective of diverse communities and knowledge keepers from around the world. It will also provide new ways of thinking about the intersection of science and culture, and showcase artifacts representative of diverse scientific approaches from Indigenous as well as Western communities.
"INNOVEXPO'S" subject is the development of innovative applications, which incorporate scientifically substantiated content. For the requirements of the project, the selection and dissemination of the Greek Mythology has been chosen as a case study. The multidisciplinary research will explain and document the causes of the creation of myths by seeking their relationship to natural phenomena and global geomorphological and geotectonic changes. Incorporating its results into technological applications will provide scientific validity and an attractive perspective to reading and presenting mythology. Augmented/mixed reality, tactile interaction, computer vision and radio-frequency recognition technologies will be used to implement an innovative technology framework that will conceptually convey the content.

Stop and Go - an exhibition on mobility - This exhibition is an interactive action field that challenges visitors to reflect on their daily behaviour when it comes to getting from A to B. We love our cars, but is this a sustainable way to form the mobility of the future? What are the alternatives and what can I do - now! DASA Working World conceived a playful approach to a very relevant issue - mobility is both highly emotional and omnipresent.

Beyond Bruegel is an immersive art experience in which visitors -literally- walk in the oeuvre of the Flemish master Pieter Bruegel the Elder. By using high quality projections, visitors discover the style and characteristics of the painter in extraordinary detail. Bruegel's artwork comes to life as you wander through the landscapes that inspired him. Suddenly, you'll be walking alongside Mad Meg's army or sailing on a ship at the foot of the Tower of Babel. Bruegel tells the story of his life as well as musing on his thoughts and anxieties. Beyond Bruegel is co-created with Bruegelexperts and is an official Flemish master expo by Visit Flanders. Visualising art through immersive projection is the perfect gateway to make art accessible to anyone and inspire many people to explore the original pieces!
