Culture Quest Exhibition Opening - Level Up: Workshops Outcomes

4 editions, 10 workshops, 18 mentors, 100+ young participants, and soon, an exhibition!

On November 22, we're leveling up, and we invite you to Gallery 5 at 6:00 PM to see the results of two years of Culture Quest experiences.

In 2022, we entered a seismological observatory for the first time and learned about the earthquakes that shake and shape our planet. We explored the basic principles of detecting seismic vibrations and discovered how a seismoscope works.

We performed movement exercises and used our bodies to express our fears related to earthquakes. We worked collaboratively, had fun, and experimented. For a deeper understanding of this phenomenon, we studied recent discoveries in Earth Sciences and integrated them into the context of artworks relevant to this subject.

We played with circuits and sensors, building electronic machines that generate noise when shaken.

In 2023, we practiced patience, acquainted ourselves with bacteria and fungi, and explored the fascinating world of fermentation and other natural preservation methods.

We took a stroll in the 'Botanical Garden of the Future' and imagined what life on Earth will look like millions of years from now. We discovered unusual evolutions and hybrid species and proposed new scenarios for them.

We learned about man-made earthquakes, fracking, and artistic approaches to the general theme of seismic activities.

We explored our emotional connection to urban spaces and experimented with the conceptual reconstruction of the city and familiar places, both through photography and physically through photo-chemical techniques.

We learned more about coexistence and our connection to water. We delved into an unseen universe with the naked eye and gained a deeper understanding of a fascinating, yet little-known world.

We had the opportunity to get close to the water flowing through the turbines of a water plant and better understand the human work and engineering that make its functioning possible. We delved into the depths of the sonic universe of water and discovered that it can be more than an essential element for life.

Culture Quest is a component of the Knowledge Fields program, and the four cultural partners are Indecis, Minitremu, kinema ikon, and Doar Mâine.

The project is part of the National Cultural Program "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023" and is funded and organized in partnership with the Timișoara Municipality through the Project Center. Supported by BRD-Groupe Société Générale.
